Leadership and Planning for Sustainable Growth

Investing in your board’s development elevates the level of leadership and effectiveness of your board of directors. Our team partners with you to create strategies that are customized for your organizational needs. Our approach to board development first focuses on answering the questions of your associations’ priorities and expectations. Next, we explore the leadership potential on the board and how to maximize the talent, skills, resources, and interests of those who serve now and in the future.


From here, we design the optimal structure that will support the unique needs of the association and its current priorities. Our board development methods have resulted in stronger board member engagement, better understanding of the board governance role, and even better membership retention.
