A Step-by-Step Guide for

Board Recruitment


Board leadership can break or make a nonprofit. Simply put, selecting the right board members is one of the most critical decisions an organization makes.

As a nonprofit organization, you have a duty to seek and select qualified community representatives to serve on a governing board.  The board fulfills three critical functions for the organization: trusteeship, provide oversight and secure necessary resources.

How should an organization get started with such an important task?

This Step-by-Step Guide for Board Recruitment provides key strategies for better recruitment efforts. And by better, I mean actually get the right people to say yes.

It doesn't have to be overwhelming. It can seem like a daunting task when you read it all and you're thinking, "Yeah, sure, but Sabrina, I need board members now." I know it's tempting to just so send the emails to the people you think you need and call it done. But I promise you that being a little more strategic is the way to go for long-term success.
