Steve Smith worked with us to re-build our board of directors in 2008. Board members came to understand "best practice" and developed job descriptions that are still informing our work. Steve helped us to pull together stakeholders and identify new community resources. We were surprised to realize the support available right in our own community! Board members felt comfortable with Steve right from the start, he took time to understand our organization and made sure that all of our work was a good fit for us. Steve tailored his work to our needs and the board took full ownership of the results

    William. Thanks for your inquiry. When I’m engaged to work for a nonprofit on board recruitment, I have a self-assessment tool I use. When I’m giving friendly uncompensated advice, I recommend that leaders determine the demographics, skills and experience of current crew and identify areas where there may be “holes” to fill. For example, if there’s no person on board with marketing/communications expertise, I think this is an important gap to fill. For nonprofits that can’t attract such a star, I suggest forming a work group of two or three people with such capabilities to work pro bono (if no budget to pay for it) on tasks as needed. Hope this helps you get started! Feel free to send along additional questions to me directly s.p.99smith@gmail.com. Steve Smith.
