How do you create a volunteer structure that allows members to volunteer in the way that matches their time, expertise and interests? How  do you make sure that your boards and committees have the expertise they need to tackle their initiatives?

In this episode of Associations Thrive, host Joanna Pineda interviews Rick Grimm, CEO of NIGP. Rick introduce NIGP, shares his journey to becoming CEO, and then shares how NIGP is thriving through:

  • A rebrand that expanded the association’s reach and membership.
  • A Talent Council that recruits continuously.
  • Volunteer interviews that ask the member “How do you want to be involved in NIGP?”
  • Thought leaders on the Board who do not come from the membership, who bring expertise in specific areas, and who have all the rights and voting power as members from the profession.
