Recruiting and Retaining a High Performing Board

Build Better Boards! How to Find, Recruit, and Engage Great Board Members




Discounts available for Santa Clara County nonprofits. (Details Below)



Workshop Description

One thing is constant - our organizational needs and boards are always changing. An effective nonprofit board recognizes this (and plans for it!) by developing processes to ensure an ongoing, healthy board. In this workshop you will learn to match board recruiting strategies to your organization’s mission. We will explore tactics for effectively identifying what board talent your organization needs to achieve your impact goals, offer practical ways to find and develop these board candidates, and discuss strategies to keep them engaged once they’ve joined the board.  We recommend your ED and board member(s) attend this workshop together. 

Intended Audience: Nonprofit board members and executive directors.


  • Learn the nine key steps to finding, recruiting, and engaging nonprofit board members
  • Identify ideas and resources for improving the composition and effectiveness of your board 
  • Leave with templates for board agreements and work plans to transform your board into a strategic asset
  • Develop a “recruiting map” to identify who you need on the board and how to find them (including LinkedIn and other recruiting tools)
