Best Practices for Recruiting Board Directors

Typically, the process for finding a new board member consists of tapping into your existing and probably, somewhat homogeneous, network. The problem with this is the inability to tap into new talent pools, not to mention the time it takes to narrow your search down to available candidates and possibly, the lack of diversity and breadth of experience in your network.
