Recruit Your Dream Board Members

If you are in search of inspiration for your club or association’s board during the ramp up to fall soccer, look no further than Gail Perry’s post on transforming your nonprofit board.

Her simple advice? If you want to recruit all-star board members, tell potential board members about who is on your board and who you plan to recruit to your board. Use the power of peer pressure (in a good way!) to show recruits that you are planning to stack your board with the kind of volunteers that they would give anything to work with.

Read Perry’s post here to learn exactly how the governance committee of the board made it from vision to reality. Ask your fellow board members at your next meeting: if we could recruit anyone to our board, who would it be?

Happy Monday!
