Consider an Orientation for New Board Members

Submitted by Stacey Warner

New extension board members will be taking office soon. Remember that there is a New Board Member Orientation in the Board Leadership Modules.

The orientation is designed to be presented to new board members after their election, but before they take office. The local unit director, other agents and current board members are the intended presenters. Depending on the number of newly elected board members, it might be beneficial to include several continuing members to form a group large enough to interact productively. Allow approximately 90 minutes for orientation. Because of the length of time required, the orientation might need to be scheduled outside the regular board meeting time.
