Boards- Helpful Hint #5- Interview Questions for Prospective Board Members

Proper selection of board members is key to the performance of a non-profit. Board members who work together cooperatively, have a passion for the organization’s mission and help secure financial resources lead to success. On the other hand, board members who are antagonistic, lack passion for the mission and avoid donating and raising funds lead to an organization’s underperformance or failure.

For help in determining interview questions for prospective board members, try reading GuideStar’s article entitled “What to Ask Every Prospective Board Member.” The article discusses questions to consider, including:

• How passionate are you about our cause?
• What expectations do you have from the management of organizations on whose boards you serve?
• What are your personal dreams or aspirations that could be enhanced by service on our board?
• What professional or personal constraints on your time or service might you anticipate?
• Are you willing to make a financial commitment that is a stretch?
