New board members from the business world often speak a different language and operate from a different culture from the nonprofit board they join, which can result in a bumpy experience. This interactive session will look at how to effectively recruit, onboard and integrate such board members. The main goal is a seamless start leading to a productive and mutually satisfying experience, along with business and nonprofit professionals learning from each other and experimenting with best practices from both realms. This workshop is designed for all nonprofits.
