Be the first to review!


Your board of directors may be the governing body of your association, but how do you make sure your relationship with the board is as efficient and effective as possible? How do you make sure you’re leveraging your board members’ experience while assigning each member clear responsibilities that’ll help drive your association forward without making more work for your staff? Now, imagine how hard that would be if your board of directors included 100 of the most powerful people in the country.

Learn how the past six Secretaries of State — Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Rex Tillerson and Mike Pompeo — managed their own Board of Directors — the United States Senate. Join Danny Stoian, a career diplomat and current Harvard Fellow, to learn how you can draw on the lessons of American diplomacy to avoid governance pitfalls while getting the most out of your own board of directors.
