Published by Ohio Society of Association Executives
and Association Executives of North Carolina

Have you ever wondered why your board members seem to take off their strategic thinking caps before entering the boardroom? This session will explore why boards aren’t strategic thinking entities and, more importantly, present 25 tangible ideas / practices to transition your board to a strategic thinking body. Participants will learn how everything from board selection to culture to board meeting management plays a role in creating a strategic thinking board.

Although one can’t teach a board to be strategic, experiential learning works! Starting with creating a strategy for change and change management principles, this session includes 25 practical tips for creating strategic thinking experiences for your board, through the introduction of generative thinking / governance, tools of inquiry and the three key components of strategy, as well as other good governance practices.

Please note that CAE exam and renewal applicants can only use a maximum of 50% of their application hours from self-study programs.
