Board Recruitment Plan

Project Details

What We Need
  • Assessment of specific Organizational needs mapped to specific board roles
  • Candidate evaluation guide for prospective board members, including suggested vetting questions and timeline
  • 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 would love to expand our board, looking for board members that can be advocates for Listen to New York, have expertise in fundraising, leadership, education, building businesses and other areas. We're also trying to get household names in the music industry interested to serve as board members, as well as individuals who have strong ties within communities in the 5 boroughs.

What We Have In Place
  • Our board consists of 4 individuals so far, 3 of them too involved with their own businesses to be a significant asset for our organization. We're only looking to find board members who are experts in various fields that could be helpful for the growth of our organization.
    We've looked into various board recruiting platforms but need guidance in regards to what platform to use and what other effective methods there are in regards to finding board members in New York.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $7,822 , allowing us to expand our reach, fulfill our goals, expand our program and provide resources to students.

We believe that board members can be essential to the growth and success of our non profit by:
- being advocates and ambassadors for our mission
- connecting us with the right people
- convincing potential donors to donate
- advising and leading through their expertise and experience
- etc
