Who's at The Table? Board Recruitment Reconsidered

Tuesday, July 23 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm • Organized By Nonprofit Connect
125 East 31st Street, Kansas City, MO 64108

About

How do you get the right people around your board table? And once you have them, how do you keep those board members active and engaged in the work of the organization?  

In this fast-paced workshop you’ll learn how to reframe your board matrix to make it a meaningful and effective tool for recruitment, discover new ideas for expanding your board recruitment base beyond the typical “who do we know?”, and have a candid discussion about the challenge of increasing board diversity.  

Finally, we’ll reveal the key to successful board recruitment AND engagement…spoiler alert… it begins with clearly defined board expectations and responsibilities. Bring your board recruitment ideas and experiences to share in small group breakout discussions.
