Finding the Right CandidatesThe proper composition of your board is absolutely essential. It’s more then bringing together talented individuals, rather you should find people whose talents complement each other and then orient and train them to excel as a group. There are two ways we can help you in this critical area. Option 1 - Using Triangle BoardConnect (TBC) as a no-cost, stand alone resource
You will have access to hundreds of candidate profiles by logging on to the boardnetUSA program and posting both your nonprofit profile as well as board positions you seek to fill. You can then communicate, through the program, with candidates that you have an interest in for your board or committee. The starting point: Completing your Profile You should attempt to answer all questions asked by the boardnetUSA program in developing your profile. It reflects your organization’s commitment in working with the program. We have developed two resources to assist you in this process. We recommend you print them out and use them as resources in using our program: Guide for Nonprofits Click Here

Using TBC as a standalone resource is quite often all that many nonprofits need. You might, however, consider expanding your board development efforts to respond to internal board needs. See Option 2 below to learn about the availability of additional assistance.
Option 2 - Combining the resources of Triangle BoardConnect with optional Executive Service Corps of the Triangle (ESC) Consulting Services TBC is a program of ESC, which has been providing low cost professional consulting for Triangle nonprofits for over 20 years.
Board development consulting is at the core of our ESC practice. The goal of our Board development consulting is to help Boards be more effective, so that the organization or agency can, in turn, become more efficient. This makes the work of Board members more upbeat and meaningful.
- Our program is offered in four, flexible modules and is tailored to your nonprofit’s needs, size, and stage of growth.
- Modules consist of: Initial Overall Assessment, Board Roles and Responsibilities, Board Membership/Composition, and Board Organization and Operations.
- Any module can be used as a stand-alone engagement or in combination depending on your needs and budget.
