Problem: Board members lack key knowledge or skills



Rarely does a board have all the expertise it needs within itself to oversee the organization and chart a course for success. Navigating boards will tend to feel the greatest need for new information and expertise as they prepare to make major changes and venture out into new areas. Some boards can recruit new board members whenever needed to gain this expertise. If the bylaws will not allow that, then they can form new committees and recruit outside people to serve a temporary role to supply what they need. They can also invite guest presenters to a board meeting including clients, funders, or community leaders. Boards can also hire a consultant or coach to serve as a guide during unusual times.
