After our orientation meeting, Steve dove right into the task, and along the way, became an ardent supporter and coach for Blue Ocean Society. Once the board determined that developing our board was critical to ensuring our capacity to perform our mission, Steve facilitated our creation of a board member role and responsibilities document. In less than a year, we recruited 3 new board members who have brought tremendous strength to the organization. I am now proud to talk about our board and able to better articulate the organization's accomplishments. Steve is wonderful to work with - positive, accessible, and skillful at providing ideas and advice. His many years of experience in the non-profit sector make him an ideal consultant and I'm so glad we worked with him.

    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.
