Any association executive knows the secret to getting things done in associations is working effectively with the volunteer leaders. ISAE will be offering a one day program aimed at providing association executives the opportunity to bring their chief elected officers together to learn how to work together to accomplish the goals of the association.

The program is designed to give you the tools to set priorities for your association and to determine how best to work together in a strong volunteer-staff partnership.

You and your volunteer leaders will learn:

• What it takes to be an effective Board Member
• Effective Board and CEO relationships
• How to have the “ideal” Board meeting
• How to set mission driven priorities
• What to report…what not to report
• The importance of strategic planning
• Incorporating planning at every Board meeting
• Why Boards fail
• Legal responsibilities of Board members
• Five key questions all Board’s must address
• Meeting member needs – and through what means and measuring success
• Budgeting for action
• CEO Performance Evaluation
• Evaluating the Board
• Managing Volunteer Committees and Task Forces

ISAE members are encouraged to have a Board member attend this opportunity with them, but having a Board member attend the meeting is not required for registration.


Talk to your Board members now and get this great opportunity on your calendars!

Testimonial from Susan Patterson Plank, Executive Director, Iowa Newspaper Association, "This was a good investment. I was concerned having not been to this and exposing two of my incoming Presidents. I won’t hesitate to attend again in two years with incoming officers."
