Each January, the Board of Directors meet to discuss our focus, roles and operation. This year, Jim DeLizia, CAE, facilitated an excellent team building retreat for our 18-member Board. Based on a recent member survey, we discussed the possible need to change our longstanding Society Program, including ways to retain and enhance our membership.
Keys points of discussion included:
The Leadership Partnership between the Governance and Management of our Society -- understanding the roles and responsibilities of the Board and Executive Director.
The focus of a Strategic, High Performing, Informed Board.
The fiduciary responsibilities to our members — to maintain financial accountability and exercise due diligence. The conference helped us create a strategic framework and plan for the next year. We will communicate to our members of our continued progress.
