We used to recruit board members from among our friends and acquaintances . . . no wonder we often run out of people in familiar circles to ask.
Today, recruiting is as much about knowing WHAT you want to recruit, as HOW to recruit. Building strong board leadership is an essential step in cultivating a thriving nonprofit.
Join Common Good Vermont and Jan Van Buren of Noonmark Services on April 27th for to learn the how and what of recruiting future board members.
The event will include networking time with light food and beverage.
