You have been asked to report to the board! Does that statement spur your anxiety? It does for many. The CEO is the constant in working with the board. But they are not the only people for whom board engagement is critical. From the administrative support professional, to the organizational leaders, everyone is well served to understand the role of the board and how to best support the board in doing their important fiduciary and governance work. This three-part series is for all those people who contribute to the board’s understanding and work. Quality, human resources, physical plant, IT, and others can benefit from advanced understanding of how, and why, the board does its work. CEOs can benefit from this refresher as well to help their people best interact with the board.
Session 1 of the series sets the stage with the specific responsibilities of the Board and how the roles and responsibilities of the board and staff are shaped. The session will provide specific examples for those who have occasional work with the board and for those who have more direct ongoing engagement with the board’s work.
