New report touts value of recruiting younger members

My e-mail in-box seems to be a treasure trove of must-share nonporofit resources these days. Today, I received word of a new BoardSource report on a topic of intense interest to me right now -- the importance, and challenge, of recruiting younger members to our boards.

I'm still reading the report itself, but I wanted to help spread the word on this new information source. Click here to access an overview of the report. Click on the link in the second paragraph to access the report itself.

Then please return to this space to share your reactions to what the authors outline. What are the challenges your board might face with increased attention to engaging younger members? What are the potential opportunities that might be introduced if your board made this a priority? Please share!
