Experienced corporate and non-profit board members, Pamela and Charlotte, return in 2020 with a new roundtable topic on how to troubleshoot your Board. This is a rare opportunity to brainstorm with peers and pros on how to constructively improve your Board’s interactions and overall dynamics for optimal outcomes.
This is an interactive workshop and discussion for both nonprofit and profit organizations. Pamela Packard and Charlotte Walker, who both have significant experience on a wide range of Boards as well as professional certifications for Board membership, will facilitate.
Participants are invited to engage by sharing their own challenges, experiences and asking questions.
Common Questions include:
- How do you identify and recruit board members?
- How do you engage a board member who misses meetings and does not contribute? Conversely, how do you deal with a board member who micromanages?
- How do you address factions among board members?
- What level of financial contribution, sweat equity or professional expertise may be expected from a board member?
- How are non-performing or troublesome board members removed from the board?
- Are my expectations realistic?
Your questions will lead to a discussion of current best practices that will help you and your organization excel including topics such as:
- Traits of a great Board
- Diversity on the Board
- Sphere of influence and what that means for your Board
- Governance models and how that impacts Board membership
- Personality traits
- Emotional and “other” IQ’s
