Register Today for the October Luncheon & Fall Seminar

Build a Rock Solid CEO/Board Partnership
October 23rd
President Abraham Lincoln DoubleTree
Luncheon 11:30 am – 1:30 pm; Fall Seminar 2 - 4 pm
Sponsored by: DuPage Convention & Visitors Bureau

Based on Chapter 5 of Mr. Westman's book Board & CEO Roles For Achieving Association Goals - Nurture the CEO/Board Working Relationship.

Associations are unique in terms of the continual turnover of board officers and other board directors, and how involved many board members are in the nuts n bolts of running an association. These realities make it imperative for CEOs and other senior executives to develop strong partnerships with board members individually and collectively.

This presentation will identify best practices for building such partnerships, starting well before volunteers ascend into top board leadership positions.
