Interest Once a prospective candidate has expressed interest in your organization, the first step is research. • What do they do for a living? • Are they successful? • Do they know “people?” • Can they help build your board/organization? • Are they willing to give their time and money to your organization?
  • 11. Involvement ◦ What do they expect to get out of their involvement? ◦ Do they have a good/bad past history with other organizations? ◦ Do they want hands on, or is this just a resume booster? Qualifications ◦ Are they qualified to join the board? ◦ Remember: Board members are the decision makers of the organization…interview them as if you are paying them a salary!
  • 12. Education ◦ Educating a board member on the vision, direction, and ultimate goals of your organization is the single most important mission of your organization’s executive staff. This will keep the board on the right track.
