This session will provide practical tips for strategically recruiting, nominating and retaining board members as well as emphasize the importance of establishing high performance expectations and providing ongoing board and leadership development as the best way to attract and engage quality board members. Don’t undermine your board’s effectiveness by soft-pedalling expectations! Expect excellence and be rewarded by hard work and a powerful commitment to your organization’s mission and goals.

This workshop is part of NYCON/GM’s monthly series of trainings for nonprofits and their boards: “Practical Solutions for Today’s Nonprofit Governance Challenges.” The trainings address a wide range of topics such as defining the expectations of board service, building leadership, improving fundraising skills and strategies and the board’s working relationship with staff leadership. They are presented by NYCON’s team of professional staff. Space is limited to provide a customized experience and meaningful interactions between participants.
