    26. 26. How can LinkedIn help us recruit new board members?  We need connections to help us achieve our mission – and that starts by having board members like you join our cause.  Instead of asking around and spending so much time playing the “who do you know” game, we can search our networks intelligently with LinkedIn  When we are looking for a new board member, the recruiting committee can identify a short list of candidates on LinkedIn (and review their resumes instantly), then ask board members for specific introductions  LinkedIn can help us search faster but we still need to conduct our normal vetting process LinkedIn Confidential ©2013 All Rights Reserved 26
    27. 27. How does LinkedIn Board Member Connect work?  LinkedIn Board Connect allows us to quickly search the networks of all board members that are already using LinkedIn and are connected to the ED or recruiting committee chair.  The recruiting committee will use our LinkedIn network as-is – we don’t need to spend time setting up a new tool or system.  Keeping your LinkedIn network up-to-date is the most important factor in successful searches.  Once we identify a candidate, we’ll ask you for an introduction to the individual.  We will never cold call your connections! LinkedIn Confidential ©2013 All Rights Reserved 27
    28. 28. What is included with LinkedIn Board Member Connect?  Identify high potential board candidates through enhanced search capabilities using LinkedIn’s Talent Finder (a $1000 annual value)  Learn how to make the most of LinkedIn through exclusive product tutorials  Get access to a powerfully connected nonprofit peer network with membership to the Board Connect group LinkedIn Confidential ©2013 All Rights Reserved 28
    29. 29. What do you need to do?  In order to search your network, you must be registered with LinkedIn and you must be connected to the ED or recruiting committee chair or whomever is doing the searching.  The ED or recruiting committee chair will be able to see your connections through the search and then will ask you for specific introductions when appropriate.  You don’t need to add any additional features or register for anything new to participate.  We simply provide our EIN to LinkedIn and the individual in charge of recruiting will have the features activated on his/her own LinkedIn account.
