This workshop is designed for anyone who serves on or with a board. Participants will learn key functions of a productive board, practical strategies for providing effective board leadership and management, and roles and responsibilities members play to help boards be productive.

In this session, we'll focus on three specific board traps:

  • Lacking Direction and Purpose
  • Filling Seats with the Usual Suspects
  • Going "Off Track"

A workbook with helpful tools and information on these and four other common board traps will be provided.

If three members of an organization attend, the third registration is free. Use the manual form to register and note "special group rate" on the form.
