How does your nonprofit organization find and engage dedicated board members? If you’re like most nonprofits, you’re trying to create a 21st century board of directors using 20th century methods. Chances are, you’re not getting the support and engagement you need from them.

Board development is an area of volunteer engagement with which nonprofit organizations often struggle – and yet, an organization’s board members should probably be your most dedicated, skilled and active volunteers. For many organizations, the challenge begins with reaching out through your networks to find possible board prospects. How can you build and leverage strong networks to help you find the right people for your nonprofit’s board?

Fortunately, new online technology tools that have sprung up in the past few years, such as LinkedIn’s Board Connect, can be used to help you identify and engage nonprofit board prospects – the trick is to find the right tools for your organization’s needs, and use them in the right way.

For the December session of Nonprofit Insights, Alice Korngold, CEO of Korngold Consulting, LLC, and Bryan Breckenridge, Nonprofit Success Enabler at LinkedIn, will discuss the importance of developing a strong nonprofit board, the challenges many organizations face in doing so, and the technology tools that can help your nonprofit successfully engage board members. In addition, Breckenridge will demonstrate the key features of Linkedin’s new Board Connect, a package of powerful social networking tools and training to engage board members from LinkedIn’s community of 185 million professionals.

  • Strategies for enriching your board and organization by expanding your network of board candidates.
  • How to decide what you're looking for with regard to prospective new board candidates.
  • Strategies for using technology to engage nonprofit board members online.
