LinkedIn can be a great resource to find potential volunteers in your association’s industry. You can also find your next major donor or Board member by doing the right searches. Use advanced search to narrow down your results through criteria such as location or industry. The tool can help you find relevant candidates and you can see if you have any mutual connections that can introduce you.
LinkedIn also has a great section, LinkedIn for Volunteers (http://volunteer.linkedin.com/). Members can add causes that they care about and signal if they are interested in joining a Board. And as an organization, you can post open Board roles.
