TOOLS FOR IDENTIFYING, RECRUITING AND DEVELOPING A BOARD
SOURCE FOR POTENTIAL BOARD MEMBERS AND CREATING A DATABASE
Board Members play a crucial role in any organization. They are the trustees who hold the organization in trust. At the same time, they are volunteers, don’t derive any benefit from the organization and have to act as the ultimate reference point. An organization faces a challenge to identify new members as there are no material benefits for being on the Board and at the same time, there are sacrifices of time involved. The motivating factor for a person to join the Board of an organization is the cause for which the organization works.
In an organization a General body and a Governing body is legally mandated and all the members are mostly volunteers. Some organizations also have an Executive committee that is above the governing body. However, it is very much necessary to create a supporter or volunteer base from where the organization can pick up its potential Board members. This volunteer base is not mandated legally but is a desirable practice that an organization may choose to follow.
