Do You Have a Strong Board?

Wed Mar 26, 2014
2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Cary Library Meeting Room

Abbie J. von Schlegell


What are Board members’ obligations individually, collectively, ethically, and legally? Does it matter if it’s a working/management group or more governance-oriented? What kinds of support, not just financial, does your Board provide? What is your Board orientation like…are new members told what is expected of them? How well does it assess its own performance? Does your Board have a positive relationship with your CEO…why or why not? Does an organization’s size or sector matter?

You’ll learn about these topics and much, much more in this seminar. Please bring your own questions and share your experiences.
