Building and Maintaining Your Best Board

When you can't control who gets appointed to a board, how can you ever create a sense of unity and engagement among its members? By adhering to a board development cycle, you can create an effective, well-functioning board.

Getting the board development cycle right takes careful planning, consistent execution, and truthful evaluation. Join BoardDocs on a fast-paced trip through the four-part board development cycle.

You and your staff will discuss:

  • Board development planning and board member recruitment (including strategies for appointments)
  • Sound strategies for orientation and on-boarding
  • Tactics to build board engagement
  • Handling board assessments, as well as retaining (or removing) members
