During this project a pro bono consultant assesses the nonprofit’s current strategic priorities, board role, board structure, and conducts a needs analysis. The consultant then identifies an ideal board structure, board recruitment process, and develops board position profiles for future recruitment efforts. Finally, the pro bono consultant creates a marketing analysis that identifies how other organizations recruiting similar candidates position themselves, high-value methods for outreach to potential candidates, and tools such as key messages and recruitment. materials.

What activities will be completed as part of the project:
Discovery interviews with relevant staff and a review the organization’s strategic plan, existing board-related documentation, and other human resources-related information.
A basic market analysis that describes the current recruiting environment and identify recruiting possibilities and challenges.
A gap assessment that maps the current board against the needs of the nonprofit and highlights recruitment priorities and is the basis for position profiles.
Provide marketing and recruitment guidelines, such as key messages, and a marketing action plan which includes communications guidelines, a timeline, and task assignments for those in charge of implementation.
Creation of an evaluation guide describes how to introduce and review board candidates, guidelines for accepting them or turning them down, deferring, or repurposing candidates, from pipeline candidates to nominated directors.
