Organizational Application for Board Members

Interested in connecting with potential board candidates?

The importance of a committed, qualified and energized board can’t be overstated, and neither can the difficulties of finding the right people for your board. We encourage organizations to build a board for where an organization is going, not for where it has been. Therefore, before recruiting new board members, a board must be clear who and what the organization needs. It is also important that board candidates know enough about your organization and its board to know if yours is the right organization for them.  

If you want to find the right people to serve on your board of directors, we can help.

Please tell us about your organization, the board and the expectations for board members. This will help candidates to determine if they would be a good fit as a board member. Once we have your completed application, we will match it to the right candidates in our database and share it with them. The next step is the potential candidate’s.
