Board Presidents' Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Serving as the board president is not about surviving, but about thriving—a board team thriving under your leadership. As a board president you are a leader among leaders, but you are not alone. Invest in your own development and network with peers in this all-new, interactive workshop. Together we’ll tackle tough issues, discuss guiding principles and identify strategies to broaden your leadership toolkit.

What guiding principles drive your decisions when:

  • Board members disagree on highly charged issues?
  • You are conducting an open forum during your board meeting?
  • Your community does not understand what the board does and why?
  • The agenda is not focusing the board’s work on “the right stuff”?

We’ll investigate these challenges, share ideas to strengthen board unity and more. This workshop is custom designed to meet the needs of board presidents, but any aspiring board leader or administrator is welcome to attend!

Attention! You must register to attend the Board Presidents' Workshop. Walk ins are welcome!
