Few things are as important as having a healthy, robust board of directors. Does yours fit that description?  This program will teach you how to build a vital board that possesses a solid understanding of how to govern. The role of a board member is no longer merely honorary. It requires action. This upbeat, interesting session will provide real-world examples from experiences with both poorly functioning and great boards alike. This webinar will help directors build and operate a better board. From an improved understanding of corporate governance to tools that will help streamline the actual meeting process and better facilitate discussion, this session will cover a host of issues. It will address the roles of the board chair and individual directors, how strategic planning factors into what directors do, the emerging issue of board diversity, and more. Participants will not only improve their board meetings but become better board members.
