- What is missing that would create your ideal Board of Directors?
Moving From Legacy Directors to Leadership
If you are like many member-based organizations, your Nominating Committee is assembled a few months before the end of the fiscal year to identify and select candidates to replace directors whose terms are expiring. Filling Board seats is a just-in-time activity and many times, directors are replaced with other leaders from similar industries or expertise. Maybe it is time to rethink the Board selection process.
You need a framework to identify, recruit, and select directors that builds the Board with the right mix of skills, knowledge, representation, and other characteristics to perform optimally. Board selection should be focused on competencies, diversity, and skills and not based on popularity or dues investments. Board diversity is more than race and gender and selection should not be based on meeting quotas.
During these uncertain times, it’s important for your Board to leverage trends and navigate a strategic direction for the organization. The leadership of your organization is dependent on developing a future-ready Board. Join us as we discuss innovative practices to design the ideal Board your organization needs to thrive.
Are you ready to develop the Board your organization really needs?
