Event Description

Linn & Benton Counties Learn at Lunch: Board Recruitment and Retention 

Jess Hampton, Learning Programs Manager, NAO

It is critical that you get the right people on your board and keep them! In this session, you will learn tested strategies for board recruitment, as well as new, innovative approaches. We’ll also discuss orientation processes and how to develop methods that will retain valuable board members and encourage stewardship.

Due to the increasing COVID-19 cases and rise of the Delta variant, this session will be held virtually via Zoom.

This event made possible with support from The Ford Family Foundation.
