Your Board, and their collective minds and experiences, represent your highest vision for your organization. The Governance Committee (or Committee on Trustees) is the most important and influential force on board culture, so investing time and energy into this committee and its ongoing function should be a priority for your leaders.
During this webinar, Senior Consultant Nancy Gray will dive into some of the important work of your Governance Committee: the identification, qualification, and recruitment of new board members. We will share the best ways to focus your board members on this critical work that can help elevate your institution, while also helping your board members feel engaged and enthusiastic about their work.
Topics we will cover include:
- About Your Committee on Trustees
- Board Member Identification
- The Qualification Process
- Recruiting New Board Members
- What You Can Do to Help Your Board Members Succeed
