Do you work regularly to build new skills, relationships and capabilities with your board members?  Are all the members of your board committed and engaged to the organization?  If you answered "No" to either question, you may want to build an ongoing process with year-round activities to create your dream board.  This session will help you cultivate and recruit the right board members and onboard them effectively so they embrace expectations and are ready to engage.  We will share the latest trends in board development, building board diversity, and board members adding value to the organization.
