[DC Idea Swap] Creating Boards of Excellence

When:  Nov 26, 2019 from 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM (ET)
About the Session

Often we focus on creating a board of excellence when a new board transitions into our association. But creating a board of excellence requires more than a once a year effort. It requires commitment, patience, making the organization a priority above personal interest, listening to others even when they don't share your perspective, and the willingness to support a voice/decision outside the board room when the vote didn’t go your way.

Join Lowell Aplebaum, CAE, CPF, CEO, Vista Cova to learn how your association can create a board of excellence. Lowell will discuss how to ask the hard questions, hear varied voices and opinions, and capture moments of connection to develop a board that leads better together.
