After the board meeting: From table to execution
By Robert C. Harris
It has been said that most actions fail to be implemented following a board meeting. How could this be when the commitments are documented in the minutes, consensus has been reached and assignments were made? Everyone has good intentions at the time.

Know your members through better surveys: A how-to guide
Association Adviser
Associations tend to commission studies of their industries as a whole. While that is a great way to gauge the overall health of the industries they represent, it may not gauge the health of your individual members’ businesses.
