Discussion: Challenges of Board Recruitment

Introduction to the Nonprofit Sector

APA format 1-2 pages Be sure to support your postings with specific references to the Learning Resources.

The board of directors, sometimes called trustees, is fiscally, legally, and morally responsible for an NPO. The board of directors has a distinct governance role that is different from that of the staff members. The board is responsible for creating the operating policies and procedures for the NPO. Members typically provide both financial resources and business acumen. The recruitment, orientation, and training of board members are extremely important for ensuring their success, as they often come from diverse backgrounds and bring different areas of expertise.

In this Discussion, you will explore the challenges of forming an effective board of directors, and how to overcome these challenges.
