How do you recommend we orient a new trustee?

By following a few simple steps to create an orientation that is both effective and engaging, you can give your new trustees the tools they need.

Start with the article Orienting New Trustees, which includes sample board orientation handbooks and handouts. For even more detail, download the publication Bringing on the Board: Practical Steps for Orienting Foundation Board Members. Finally, for ongoing training and education, refer to the article Strategies for Educating and Developing Your Board.
