How do you induct a new board member?

All new board members need to be issued with a full induction pack/handbook. They should also visit the headquarters of the organisation and meet as many staff as possible. Some organisations link a new board member with a “buddy” already on the board.

New board members should be encouraged to attend performances/visit the collection of an organisation to enable them to advocate with confidence about the artistic/curatorial work.

A sample Board Induction Pack template can be downloaded here.

You can also find the Charity Commission’s new Charity trustee welcome pack here.
