This session will explore strategies that will strengthen your service to and the relationships you have with, your association's board of directors. Associations are by law and tradition, "of their members, for their members and by their members." And yet members invest within their elected board members substantial authority and responsibility for the successful leadership and management of the association. Because staff relationships with Board members are ever-changing, and absolutely necessary, individual staff cannot be successful unless meaningful relationships are created and managed and maintained. To that end, every member of the association staff is responsible for contributing to good and durable relationships with the board. Four primary keys to successful relationships are trust, performance, communications and professionalism. This session will also cover other areas such as:
The Role of the Board versus the role of staff
The Role of the Board versus that of its committees
The importance of strategic or annual planning as a means for success determination
Dealing with difficult or troublesome board members
