Communicating with your board is interesting - isn't it? You think you have a really great conversation. They are connecting on how they can best help you with fundraising. Really . . . but then a board member resigns simply saying their life is too busy to give you the time you deserve. Or . . . as you recruit new board members you're not getting some of the key folks you want to join. What's up?
In my years of interviewing scores of board members as part of my board training process for clients, their questions to me have surprised me. "Great question." I'll say. "Have you asked your development professional this?" "Well not exactly."
