Board Member Recruitment Toolkit Banner Image


The SDAO Board Member Recruitment Toolkit is designed to assist you with recruiting board members to run for open board positions or fill vacancies. We have developed several sample materials for you to use to assemble a recruitment package to be given to interested individuals. Links to these resources can be found on the right-hand side of this page.

Many of these materials have been created in Microsoft Word and can be personalized by inserting your district name, logo, or letterhead and filling in the information pertinent to your district within the body of the text. Under the Sample Recruitment Packages heading are two sample packages that you can use as a guide when creating your district's recruitment materials. 


We have also put together materials for board member orientation. After an individual is selected or elected, you can use these resources to introduce them to the district and their new role.


If you have any questions about this toolkit or accessing these resources, please contact SDAO Member Services at 800-285-5461 or


We wish you luck with your future recruitments!
