"The institute provides an invaluable opportunity to spend dedicated, highly productive time with your CEO to evaluate agency needs, maximize opportunities, and develop action plans. It’s also a wonderful opportunity to meet and learn from leaders of our peer agencies.”
2017 March Board Chair/CEO Institute
One of the most important characteristics of a high-performing nonprofit organization is the strength of the relationship between the board chair and the CEO. These two individuals provide the governance and executive leadership that is critical to an organization’s success.
The Alliance for Strong Families and Communities Board Chair/CEO Institute is designed to strengthen the relationships between CEOs and their board chairs and increase the strategic focus and competency of the board of directors. Participation is limited to 10 board chair and CEO pairs to ensure an intimate learning environment.
The institute is a valuable opportunity for executives and board chairs to work one-on-one in a focused, small group setting. Pairs will evaluate their organizations’ current level of strategic competency and identify strategies that enable boards to govern with a future-focused, high-level perspective.
The institute is highly interactive. Attendees will have ample time to learn from their CEO or board chair counterparts and other participating organizations. Previous institutes’ attendees have found that this development opportunity leads to a more cohesive and collaborative board chair/CEO relationship, which, in turn, strengthens the organization’s ability to effectively achieve its mission.
Beyond the Institute
Two post-institute coaching and consulting sessions will be scheduled at three and six month intervals following the Institute.
