A Board of Directors' advice and guidance can be a
critical component to your company that is ready to make that pivotal
leap to further growth and profitability. Having a Board is one
thing...capturing its potential and making it work "for you," is
There are basic elements that are absolutely essential:
designing a structure that is aligned with your company's needs,
recruiting members with a breadth of relevant skills and expertise,
obtaining the full commitment of each member, establishing effective
communications and protocols, and implementing self-assessment and
continuous improvement processes.
Setting up and operating a Board for a new or existing
business can be daunting. There are a myriad of questions that need to
be asked and answered to successfully create and operate a Board:
- Board of Directors or Board of Advisors?
- How do you identify and secure Board members that posses the expertise needed to contribute to your company's success?
- What can you do to fully engage each member of the Board?
- How do you establish operational guidelines that facilitate
effective and meaningful dialogue and collaboration among/between
management and the Board?
- What can you do to assess the Board's performance and implement changes that improve its effectiveness?
This seminar is designed to provide insights into one of
the tools that can facilitate your company's growth and success..."a
viable Board." The Smaller Business Association of New England ("SBANE")
has assembled a panel that will zero in on these questions and help
you identify the answers that are best for your organization.
