FMC Governance Committee
Prepare for Recruitment of New Board Members

If not already known, the Committee will utilize the governance skills and experience matrix to identify key competencies the board is lacking, and strategies to recruit trustees with those skills.
New Trustee Governance Education
Encourage new trustees to read the complete document “Critical Questions Every Board Needs to be Able to Answer” before starting their first board meeting.
