Having an effective board is one of the most important ways to ensure the success of your organization.  Yet finding and recruiting board members is one of the most difficult tasks of a Board and is typically handled at the wrong time, or in a haphazard fashion that doesn’t recruit the best folks for your organization.
In this session we will examine how to develop a board matrix to identify your board’s personnel needs, and how to build an effective and efficient board.  Our discussions will include the importance of board orientation and the need for a reliable Board handbook.
This session is designed for all board members and Executive Directors.
Learning Objectives:

  • Learn a disciplined process for identifying potential board members
  • Learn how to build a pipeline of potential board members
  • Learn how to build a framework to create the board that is best for you
  • Learn the contents of an effective board notebook

Presenter: Sally Coates has over 30 years of both professional and volunteer nonprofit experience.  Her three Executive Director positions have been with the Court Appointed Special Advocate Program in San Francisco, Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of California and the San Francisco Bay Area affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Learn more about Sally.
