Board

Trade Association

You’re the incoming Board President of a trade association. The association’s very reason for existence is to protect, promote and enhance the industry, yet the industry has changed radically. Perhaps jobs have moved oversees or the once-pending legislation that had threatened your industry is long since buried. And now that your longtime Executive Director is retiring, you find yourself asking, what are the objectives of the association and how can we maintain relevance, influence and impact?

Nonprofit Organization

You’re on the Board of a mission-driven nonprofit. A cure is still out of reach but increasing revenue will bring you that much closer. Development is essential yet the department is a revolving door. Communication and accountability is imperative, but silos persist throughout the entire organization. The skill set of longtime managers is not what it takes to drive forward. Meanwhile, your CEO has announced her retirement. Is it time to break the mold?

Professional Society

You’re on the Board of a professional society. The society exists to secure the future of the profession, yet the profession has changed radically, technology has erased jobs and there are new, nimble ”social media” societies that are attracting the best and brightest members of your industry and giving away industry knowledge for free. Perhaps your certification program and continuing education offerings are still considered essential, but that “guaranteed revenue” is slowly eroding. How do you ensure that your society maintains relevance and has a leadership role throughout the 21st century?
