Board Recruitment, Training and Development

Good governance, critical to the success of every nonprofit, requires engaged board members who share their expertise, connections and financial support. MMS Advancement Associates LLC works with you to recruit motivated board members and help them understand their essential roles and responsibilities. When your trustees or directors successfully fulfill their responsibilities in strategic planning, fiscal management, fundraising, and leading with accountability and transparency, they help to ensure that your organization fulfills its mission and transforms lives.

“Thanks for the excellent work your firm did for Habitat Lehigh Valley. We have learned a lot about ourselves and a lot about the business of fundraising as a result.”

Andrew G. Scott
Board Chair
