Board Shorts Podcast

Listen Now

Where do I find the right people for my NFP Board?  How do I build a Board that is generous? Why can’t I find any good Board Members?

I often hear these questions from exasperated not-for-profit leaders, Chairs, and Board Members.  It turns out that there is a better way to define, find, and recruit non-profit Board Members and Sabrina Walker Hernandez is an expert on this topic. She has previously been on the Board Shorts Podcast, and I invited her back to speak about finding the right people for your NFP Board.

This conversation with Sabrina covers all facets of defining and finding the right board members for your not-for-profit board, including how to switch-on Board Member giving, how to best recruit future Board Members to ensure generosity with their time, talent, and treasure, and the CEO and Chairs’ responsibility when it comes to building and maintaining a giving culture on the Board.

This is a short but jam-packed conversation with lots of takeaways for NFP leaders and Board Members. Grab your notebook or notes app and settle into this conversation with Sabrina Walker Hernandez.
