How Organizations can be More Effective in Engaging Their Existing and Future Board Members
Six Recurring Themes Identified as Foundation For Most Issues and Solutions
1. Connectivity -- A large majority of respondents said they want to feel a personal connection to an organization’s cause or issue before getting involved. Very few said they got involved because the cause was a good one.
2. No Surprises – Make sure you have effective communications with your board prospects on expectations of their role. Make sure those expectations are clearly laid out and agreed to by the board prospect. NO SURPRISES LATER!!! If they are going to be asked to raise or give money, they need to know that up front. This is a major issue.
