Don't Start with Names when Identifying Board Candidates

massnonprofit news ::: "The fact is, the worst way to begin a board recruiting process is by tossing out a few names. Unfortunately, too many of the names that get suggested in this kind of exercise are likely to be aspirational (like the founder of Google) or comfortable (like the best friend of the board chair).

Instead, boards that recruit successfully follow a disciplined process to identify individuals who are both able and willing to help the nonprofit achieve its mission. "
