Original Air Date: December 5, 2019

Presenters: Deedee Myers, Ph.D., MSC, PCC, Founder/CEO; Peter Myers, MSC, PCC, Senior Vice President, DDJ Myers 

Description: Nationwide, credit union boards are experiencing a similar challenge in finding the best possible talent to serve in a volunteer capacity (apparently citing the potential liability is not a great selling point!). The old method of recruiting and onboarding directors no longer works, and many boards are scrambling to fill a single position.

DDJ Myers will highlight the best practices for board recruitment that will result in a pool of well-qualified and eager candidates who are ready to contribute in a fiduciary and strategic capacity.

Key Takeaways:

  • How to leverage the current core strength of the board in the recruitment of new members
  • A practical way to reenergize the search for members.
  • Three recruitment strategies.
  • A guide on how to discuss and promote the board seat to attract the best recruits.
  • Ideas on high-quality screening.
