William R. Myers says that if your seminary or theological school wants to give new board members a running start, you should try these five strategies: (1) Invite newcomers to sit in on a meeting before they join. (2) Send copies of past minutes and agendas. (3) Suggest they read "Wise Stewards" from In Trust. (4) Clearly spell out expectations for board service. (5) Mark the beginning of a member's term with a campus tour and installation ceremony.
