Proper and efficient association management requires a continuous focus on leadership. You must cultivate leadership and participation by implementing strategies to build a stellar board bench. Keep in mind the principles of the organization and what traits people will need to have to help ensure the ultimate prosperity of the group.
Further board members must have a clear, working understanding of the responsibilities they are being asked to fulfill. It’s a much more straightforward job to get people involved when they fully understand the purpose of their position and the types of duties they are being called upon to do. Before developing the job description, be sure to include the time commitment, necessary skills, financial requirements, and benefits of working with the board.
Aim For High Potential
The ongoing health, well-being, and future of the organization depend on cultivating the full potential of people who become a part of it. Do your due diligence to ensure that prospects will be engaged and committed to the cause. See who is continually attending your events, participating on social media, and contributing to your financial campaigns; those are the people who have already shown dedication to service and support the growth of the organization. To cultivate a relationship, assign a current board member to invite them to meetings or to have separate conversations about their personal goals and how they will align with the goals of the organization.
Offer Necessary Tools And Training
It’s necessary that prospective board members have all the resources and training they’ll need to be successful in their positions. Design a course that new members will attend and graduate from after they’ve shown a full understanding the principles of the organization as well as the responsibilities of their role. This could take place over the course of a week or even a month.
Remain Committed To Leadership
Don’t wait until it’s time to nominate new board members to start thinking about new leadership prospects. Keep this in mind throughout the year to continually cultivate leadership among other board members and other people involved in the organization or community.
