Strategic Recruiting: Building Your Board

Friday, October 21, 2020
9:00 am - 12:00 pm
1183 Melville St., Downtown Vancouver

Recruiting new Board members who are qualified and committed is one of a Board's biggest challenges. Often, Board members ask friends and acquaintances as a last resort. But by building Boards that act, think and look like previous ones, are Boards equipping themselves to deal with the complex issues facing our changing communities? This workshop will focus on going beyond recruiting the usual suspects to help you build the best Board for your organization.
