Good governing (which should be the core “verb” of every board) starts with the first conversation. This interactive session will focus on the “who and how” of identifying, inviting, screening, and on-boarding new board members. You’ll learn about frameworks and tools for planning and expectation-setting, and the importance of a clear policy to guide everyone’s actions in recruiting others. We want to hear what’s working for you when it comes to getting prospective board members to “yes!”

It’s important to use board members’ time well so that the core functions of oversight, decision-making, and planning are happening.  In the second workshop, we’ll think through how to approach the most important first meeting, orientation (or “on-boarding”), for new board members to go beyond the basics of your mission and services. Then, we’ll talk about board meetings that support the practice of governance. We’ll look at some best practices for agenda creation, preparation, decision making, delegation, and follow-up. What is working well with your board and committee meetings? What could be done better? Come prepared to share ideas and challenges with your nonprofit colleagues!
