I recently received an unsolicited invitation to review a survey from a software/tech group that included information about what prospective board members are seeking in considering joining a nonprofit board. I took a look and believe that there are learnings to consider from the survey from Software Advice which surveyed 1,545 respondents "who have either served on a board of directors or been tasked with recruiting new board members". Here's the highlights and I presume all are welcome to take a look at the details.

What's your thoughts about the findings and analysis? Accurate? I'm not 100% certain but would be interested learning other's experience. Also, feel free to chat with the source: firstname.lastname@example.org.
