Description

Facilitated by Susan Meier, BoardSource


Effective Board leadership is crucial to an organization’s success. This high-level and collaborative workshop will engage executive directors and board members in dialogue about exceptional governance practices including such topics as:

  • defining different board performance levels
  • increasing the board's critical capital- intellect, reputation, resources and access
  • identifying and maximizing the collective judgment, wisdom, and thoughtfulness of the board in pursuit of its mission and vision
  • balancing the role as an oversight body and supporting the organization
  • learning and sharing principles and practices of exceptional boards, including generative thinking
  • envisioning the possibilities, the payoff, and the path to improve governance performance
  • engaging with colleagues about immediate and long-term action steps to help advance the mission
  • learning about the core elements of a meaningful board assessment process

Select organizations that participate in this workshop will be eligible to participate in a follow up board member peer learning session.


Organizations may send up to three people to the session; at least one must be a board member.

This session is presented as part of the 2019 Leadership Institute, a shared initiative of Community Memorial Foundation and Healthy Communities Foundation.
