Association Governance Consulting
Our association governance consulting services focus on Board of Directors effectiveness. It is our view that Association and private business governance effectiveness can be improved when Boards and Directors share a consistent view of their role and learn how to focus on three key elements:
– identification and mitigation of risk
– validation and oversight of the strategic plan
– performance management of the CEO
Our association governance services include:
– leadership and facilitation of the governance effectiveness assessment process
– consulting on Association and Private Business governance effectiveness issues including Board composition, information, leadership, processes and culture
– education of Directors and Senior Leadership Teams on governance and effective execution of their roles with respect to governance effectiveness
– coaching and mentoring of Board Chairs, Directors, CEO’s and senior leaders on their governance roles
