Hi Adrea,

Thank you for posting your question! While I am not a nonprofit expert myself, I did want to share some ideas that may point you in the right direction:

1 - I would strongly suggest reaching out to Advisors on the community feature of ACP AdvisorNet (https://acp-advisornet.org/community/advisors). It is a great way to ask Advisors with nonprofit experience directly for advice about growing your committee.

2 - I would also recommend a few of these articles I found about Forming a Nonprofit Board (https://boardsource.org/resources/first-board/), The Five Steps To Building A Community For Your Nonprofit (https://www.forbes.com/sites/forbesnonprofitcouncil/2018/06/26/the-five-steps-to-building-a-community-for-your-nonprofit/?sh=37c3c7f95878), and Nonprofit Advisory Boards (https://www.missionbox.com/article/59/nonprofit-advisory-boards-why-they-matter-how-to-get-them-off-the-ground).

Best,
Dara
