Course Description

One of the best pieces of advice for any nonprofit organization is to get rid of your Nominating Committee.  For most organizations, the Nominating Committee has two primary functions: to fill vacant Board seats and to elect officers of the Board. Many nonprofits struggle with ineffective boards. Why? Most often it is because they do not take the board recruitment process seriously. Most boards can benefit by rethinking the way they recruit board members. 

In this CPE webinar, we will discuss why nominating committees usually don’t work and an alternative that can assure a better way to identify, cultivate, recruit and retain board members that are committed to the mission of the organization, understand their role as a board member and are willing to help the organization meet its goals, especially in the area of fundraising.
