Being a Board Member

This section includes information to help boards recruit and retain members and helps define the expectations of board members.

Board member recruitment can help bring together a collection of members with complementary skills and knowledge needed to increase the effectiveness of the board.

Succession planning and mentoring programs can help bring new ideas to help the organization thrive in the agriculture industry or in rural Manitoba.

Defining board member roles and responsibilities will help the organization engage current members, clarify expectations and distribute workload evenly.

Developing a board manual will help with orientation by keeping all the essential information for new board members in one place. Board Manual Template (DOC 26 KB)
