January 16, 2014 – BoardSource has launched an expanded online Board Recruitment Center that includes free board recruitment job postings for BoardSource members in LinkedIn's new Volunteer Marketplace. According to the BoardSource Nonprofit Governance Index, almost one-third of chief executives report that they do not have the right board members to effectively govern their organizations. The expanded Board Recruitment Center’s goal is to address this need to help organizations, boards, and chief executives learn how to effectively recruit board members, and leverage LinkedIn's platform to find the board members. Anne Wallestad, president and CEO of BoardSource, said: “Thanks to this new functionality from LinkedIn, as well as generous support from the Deerbrook Charitable Trust which made this expansion of our Board Recruitment Center possible, nonprofit organizations can tap into LinkedIn's extensive global network with confidence to access the talent they need.” BoardSource supports, trains, and educates more than 80,000 nonprofit board leaders from across the country each year.
