Board Recruitment Matrix Workshop

Palmer Community Foundation is pleased to offer a free workshop to help your organization build its board recruitment matrix. Join Mike Walsh, Vice President of Public Policy for The Foraker Group to create a board matrix specific to your organization and rooted in your core values and strategic goals.

This tool can help your board know “the right people at the right time” for board service. The goal of a board matrix is to create a diverse mix of board members who provide the wisdom and work to steward the organization’s goals toward excellence and mission impact.

A board recruitment matrix is not simply a generic list of characteristics, styles, and backgrounds. It should be specific and aligned to the core purpose and values of your organization. This workshop will provide guidance to build an effective board matrix to help your organization discover who you need in the board room to achieve your goals. The process will help clarify critical actions that need to be addressed based on your strategic and operating plan.

There are many advantages of a board matrix including the ability to recruit beyond the “usual prospects” in the community. Learn to review prospective board candidates through a standard process and recruit not just people with interest, but people who will work to achieve the goals of the organization.

Please join us via Zoom on Tuesday, March 15, 2022, from 11:00 am through 1:00 pm.
