Lab: Board Recruitment

  • Arts & Business Council of Chicago 444 N Wabash Ave, LL Event Space Chicago, IL, 60611 United States (map)

Speaker: Bob Fiedler, Executive Director, Chicago Human Rhythm Project

Does your board have its recruitment plan in order? Do you know who you need on your board and have a plan laid out to reach them? This workshop will discuss several approaches toward finding your ideal board makeup as well as resources to build your board recruitment toolkit.

This workshop will discuss:

  1. Determining board needs - who do you need and why?
  2. Identifying board prospects - where are your future directors?
  3. Contacting board prospects - how to make an outreach plan
  4. Making the offer - are you prepared to seal the deal?

Attendees will pre-select one of the areas above to work on in small groups during the second portion of the lab. You will leave with action items and customizable templates to mobilize and energize your board toward a strong recruitment plan. 

Space is limited, so register today!

Registration will close at 8am on Wed, June 8.
