Board Development

Focusing on Board Succession-recruitment, engagement, and graceful exit

Partner: $90.00 / General: $180.00

Join us as we take a broad view of board succession – from recruiting new members, to engaging them in your mission, to providing them a graceful exit with gratitude for all they’ve done. This is a process that when done well can ensure continuity of the board, the board-CEO relationship, and, most importantly, the mission.

In this series, we take a closer look at the full cycle of board service with a focus on tools to keep us on track and avoid pitfalls. We also address bias and barriers to embracing a diversity of people in board service. We cover

  • Board succession planning – what it is and how it’s done strategically and thoughtfully
  • Use of a board matrix – an often misused and misunderstood tool
  • Additional tools to use throughout the succession cycle
  • Conscious conversations about diversity and what it means to purposely create a welcoming and inclusive board space

Class 1 – Board Succession Planning
What it is, why we do it, how to position ourselves for success, and the role of the board development committee

Class 2 – Recruitment Focus
Why diverse representation matters to your mission and tools that support the work including job descriptions, a board matrix, and conscious conversations

Class 3 – Engagement and Graceful Exit
How to create a welcoming environment and tools to help with evaluation

This series is recommended for board committee members, board officers tasked with this role, and executives who are supporting the effort.*

*One-on-one customized support is available for teams that want to engage in this work together.
