Event Information

When you think of your board member recruitment strategy, is it exciting and fresh, or is it stalled?

Boards that have a regular rhythm for cultivating and recruiting board members are more likely to invite vision, engage everyone’s gifts and accelerate the growth of the organization. That kind of board infuses the cause with leadership and stimulates growth in the individual members of a board.

Join us to improve and enrich your board experience by focusing on God-honoring governance. CEOs and board members will learn:

  • How to recruit and inspire the people you need to serve on your board
  • How to increase engagement, commitment, and generosity
  • Ways to identify board prospects, including first-time board members
  • How to create and use a “pathway to boards” protocol

This webinar, along with the corresponding fourth quarter workshop, is intentionally designed for ministry board members and staff to experience together so that you can continue the conversation for healthy board recruitment and orientation.

Register your board and staff today!

When you join us for this webinar you’ll also receive:

  • Tools and insights for avoiding the 4 big mistakes that most ministries make
  • Resources for inspiring your board members to be lifelong learners
  • Templates and tools for board meeting agendas, annual affirmations, and board retreats

The link to join the webinar is included in your confirmation and reminder emails once you register, and is all you need to connect on November 16th!
