Governance: All a-Board! Considerations for Board Recruitment, Engagement, and Alignment

Active and engaged board members who possess diverse, yet complementary skill-sets and expertise help position an organization to succeed and amplify its impact in the community and beyond. It is imperative when recruiting board members, to consider the areas of knowledge that would be beneficial to the organization, and keeping in mind applicable legal requirements, to seek board members who offer added value in those areas. Within the context of the federal CSBG tripartite board requirements, we will present strategies for thinking about board composition and recruitment that can assist organizations as they develop their boards. We will discuss ways to engage board members so that their skills and knowledge are put to the best possible use on behalf of the organization.
