Penny McBride, CFEE

Dynamic governance and organizational alignment don’t just happen. It takes skills-based recruitment, thoughtful evaluation and continuous leadership development. This session is intended to help organizations get the very most from their board and committees by leveraging collective human capital around shared goals. We’ll take an unvarnished look at the tell-tale signs of board dysfunction and proven strategies for improvement.
