  • Outline of ideal board structure and opportunities for new roles
  • Candidate evaluation guide for prospective board members
  • Marketing tools and guidance on how to execute recruitment
  • Note: This project does not include actual board recruitment on the part of the Professional
Additional Details

We have the space, need, and drive to expand our board. With a target of diversifying both age, and ethnicity of our contingency, we endeavor to take this project on with the help of the right volunteer.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have 23 active Trustees, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a long list of emeritus trustees that still show interest, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
