As a Board Chair, you understand your governance role to lead your board and cooperative.  This roundtable will explain the unique challenges faced by board chairs in the cooperative business world.

How do you, as Board Chair, handle the too quiet director, the overly talkative director, the director who likes to manage, or the director who likes to share everything that is discussed at the board meeting?

These and other current topics that require effective board leadership will be discussed at this roundtable.  Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to gain insight into the responsibilities of your position and network with other board chairs to share ideas about working with your directors.

Program Fee:  $300 MACC Members
