Building An Active And Engaged Board

Engaged Boards of Directors make intentional decisions to invest in their board development, in their board process and in their improvement in order to produce for the organization. These boards have leaders that are involved, accountable, and who work to ensure short-term success, and long-term viability.

This webinar will focus on six ideas that can increase your board’s engagement, by incorporating these intentional strategies.

The practices that we’ll explore include:

1. Framing of questions
2. Annual imperatives
3. Education time
4. Consent agenda
5. Dashboards
6. Assessment

We’ll discuss these 6 strategies and will also cover how to integrate them successfully into your board process.

Lastly, learn the 5 Questions Every Board Should Ask.

You’ll leave with multiple ideas that you can put to immediate use.
