If you do not have job descriptions, go onto the VLRC and see what job descriptions there are If you need to, update these job descriptions to match better what your expectations are for certain board members Align job responsibilities with Strategic Plan (if you don’t have one of these, you should…)
You should sit down with your current board and figure this out, as you will use these reasons to promote board membership. Reasons could include: ◦ Resume Builder. ◦ Deeper Networking (actually working on projects with people instead of just meeting with them once a month) ◦ Gain more experience/understanding of HR ◦ Free/Reduced Leadership Development ◦ Give back
Identify with your board what skills would be good for the board and brainstorm who may have those skills in the membership ◦ “Volun-told” leaders It is okay to give a little push sometimes Utilize Board Committees (especially Membership, Programs and Marketing) ◦ Those who may be interested but don’t want either the commitment or are maybe new to the chapter but have potential
Talk openly about the positive reasons for being a board member Make announcements well in advance of an election Post job descriptions online and have them available in print copy for people to review at meetings if they may be interested
If you promote well, you may have more than one person run for a position. Stick to election dates, ensure that the election is fair and impartial and provide the same opportunity to all members running for a position.
