Confidential Board Prospect List. Recruit board members with prayerful intentionality and board-approved criteria. Read Chapter 14 and then download this "Prospect Prayer List" as you "date" board prospects and bring them inside the circles of involvement (see page 194).
BOARD RETREAT/BOARD TRAINING. Excellent boards have one thing in common: an annual retreat. If you need help in designing a one-day or 24-hour board retreat, contact John Pearson Associates, Inc.

We help numerous boards every year with assessments, planning and board development strategies. Contact us today.
