Get Answers to Your Burning Governance Questions

By 911

Are you looking for answers to questions such as

  • What is governance anyway?
  • Are we doing it right in my organization? Can we do it better? What can I do better?
  • Bylaws, policies, procedures – what’s the difference? Why so many documents?
  • What’s the difference between what the Board of Directors does and what the staff does?
  • How can my preparation for a board meeting affect governance?
  • Help! I have to take minutes! What do I do?
  • Whew! The board meeting is over. So all my work is done, right?

Good governance practices are essential to high performing organizations. Vital principles are frequently taught to board members as part of their onboarding and orientation, yet the same principles are rarely taught to association staff. For better or worse, most training happens on the job; most learning is caught rather than taught.

Association Management Center corrects that imbalance with our half-day workshop, . Two 911 executives, Principal Mark Engle and Executive Director Mary Beth Benner, will share their governance expertise. Governance Essentials™ will be hosted by Association Forum on February 15, 2018.
