Wednesday, April 12, 2023, 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM
Fee: $25 for MCN members or nonmembers

Do your meetings have the feel of a dog fight sometimes? The alphas bark and the cats hide in the corners? As board chair, the entire organization counts on you to create a safe space for equitable and inclusive discussion and decisions. If not Robert’s Rules, how can you perform due diligence documenting decisions using a structure that supports people across the entire spectrum of neurological & cultural differences? We’ll explore the intersection of  intentionality, technology and task process and how to leverage the strengths and skills of everybody in the room to make the best possible decisions guiding your mission.

Board Bits are designed by MCN’s Greater Minnesota team to frame hot topics and spur dialogue amongst peers. Each session will offer learning from subject matter experts along with time for networking and discussion on the designated topic.
