Everyone is talking about Millennials and what associations need to do to attract this large demographic as members and leaders.

Clients often ask us about how to get the most out of a board meeting. Too often, time is lost at board meetings when directors spend their time discussing topics that could be better handled through email or a consent agenda. A strategic board agenda would use strategy as the basis to inform discussion and decision-making. We recommend a four part...
