Not Just Another Board Meeting…

 Registration is closed for this event
Meetings can be something that people look forward to OR they can be something that people dread.

There are steps you can take to ensure that your Board meetings are meaningful, focused on the issues that matter and engaging for all in attendance.

This workshop is intended for Board Chairs, incoming Chairs, Board members and senior staff. Although much of the session will focus on tools and processes useful for chairing any meeting, the focus in this session will be on Board meetings.


Participants will come away knowing:

· How to build an agenda that links discussions and decision-making to strategic issues;

· The multiple accountabilities for which Boards are responsible;

· Tips, tools, and techniques for engaging everyone at the table in meaningful dialogue;

· Strategies for working effectively with conflict;

· Ideas for evaluating Board meeting effectiveness.
