RING: A Roundtable Discussion - Board Nomination & Governance Pipelines 

Friday, September 18, 2015

8:30 am - 10:00 am

Cultivating an engaged board of directors is key to your non-profit institution's success.  However, finding potential board members with the right mix of time, talent, and treasure to govern and help manage your organization can be daunting.  This NEDRA RING program has been developed as a roundtable discussion for Prospect Researchers from all types and sizes of non-profits to share ideas and brainstorm with one another.  All viewpoints are welcome-whether your board has 10 or 100, and whether you are currently integral to this process, or you're just getting started in this role-we want to hear from you!  The host of this session has helped develop and implement both a board pipeline process and a board nomination process in line with her institution's goal of creating a culture of philanthropy.  But, like anywhere, new plans and priorities within that institution mean that more work needs to be done.  Join us for a breakfast session about the nomination and governance pipeline processes.  Come prepared with questions, concerns, and any stories you’d like to share for this discussion-based RING.
