The working relationship between CEO and board chair plays  a huge role in how well an association serves its members.  In his book, Board & CEO Roles for Achieving Association Goals, published in 2016 by ASAE, CEO and consultant David Westman helps to clearly define roles and assign accountability to decrease potential gray areas in CEO and board members’ roles within  associations. During this session, you will be exposed to selected key messages, nuggets of advice, and templates conveyed in the book, including the following takeaways:
  •  Techniques for building effective working relationships between CEOs and their boards
  • Tools and advice for assigning decision-making roles to the “right” governance leaders, entities, and staff
