Hi every one,
thinking recruitment… its so different for everyone I think. Looking at our own board and our last elections, we found it hard to identify what we were lacking or needing. As we are rural and not that large we tend to gravitate towards inviting people we know and think would fit within our board spectrum. We would discuss this as a board and then reach out and see if they are willing to put their name forth. The nominating committee does most of this.
We have an ‘on boarding’ procedure in place and encourage new board members to start their DDP training as soon as possible.
Being solid in your co-operative mind set and aligning with our values is very important to us.
