We are currently reviewing our onboarding procedures but our goal is to make new Members feel welcomed and appreciated from day one. We want them to develop a sense of purpose and belonging. We want them to understand expectations and goals. They should have access to all important Board documentation and ideally be partnered with a mentor.
