Board chairs have enormous responsibilities and accountability for the success of their boards, but little attention is given to how to become a highly effective board chair.  This new experiential and hands-on training series offered by the Mel King Institute will focus on practical strategies for becoming a more successful and skilled leader for your board.  

Participants will learn about:

  • competencies and characteristics for being an effective board chair,
  • how to develop an effective Board Chair-Executive Director relationship, 
  • how to build an engaged board,
  • how to successfully engage residents in governance decisions,
  • how to build a more diverse, equitable and inclusive board, and;
  • new models and practices of shared governance/leadership.  

Hold the dates, spread the word, and join us for this exciting new training series! Open to current or prospective board chairs only.
