The right message for the board
from By Robert C. Harris
What messages do volunteers receive as they consider board service? The responsibilities of volunteer leadership should be clearly communicated. The worst message is offered by nominating committees, "You won’t have to do anything when you get on the board." Other directors are "voluntold." The technique taps a person who misses a meeting or steps out for a moment, only to return to hear, "We decided you would be good for this responsibility."
