Registration is Open: Recruiting and Retaining Strong Board Members

Finding qualified and enthusiastic board members can be challenging, yet it is vital to the health and sustainability of nonprofit organizations. According to a recent survey, 58% of nonprofit leaders report that it is difficult to recruit new trustees, while only 73% of executives indicate they currently have the right board members in place to effectively govern their organization.*

Join us as we discuss how to cultivate, recruit, orient and engage board members to get maximum impact for your organization.
