Seven Questions To Get The Board Members You Want

Board service is a gift and a privilege. Do we make it sound as such? Here are some questions you should ask in a board interview to get the best possible board members.

  1. What do you know about our organisation? What more would you like to know? Why are you interested in committing your time and energy to us?
  2. What do you think are the characteristics of a great board member? Which ones do you demonstrate?
  3. Having known the minimum level of time required to serve on the board, can you make a commitment to board service?
  4. Can you tell us about your previous board (or committee) experience ? What were the comfort levels? What were the success touch points? Which ones do you think you can use here?
  5. There will be some activity between board meetings. Would you be willing to commit to beyond just attending board meetings?
  6. Board members bring experience, wisdom, and strategic thinking. How would you like to utilise yours?
  7. What would help make this a really great experience for you?
