Discover how you, as Board President, can keep your school viable and sustainable through the good times and bad. This weekend workshop will help you survive now and thrive in the years to come by providing strategies, insight, and guidance specifically for private-school Trustees.
The decisions that a Board makes today will be felt immediately and years from now. As Board President, you understand this, and you’re always looking for the best ways to keep your school viable and sustainable through the good times and the bad.
This weekend workshop will help you survive now and thrive in the years to come by giving you access to leadership, assessment, and planning strategies developed through ISM’s work with Boards at hundreds of private-independent schools.
- Develop a clear set of guidelines for leading your Board, both in terms of long-range Board-building and in terms of the routine of running effective Board meetings.
- Establish a framework for making your committee structure more rational and effective.
- Create an approach to evaluating and supporting your School Head.
- Design new formats for conducting strategic planning and strategic financial planning on a regular cycle with your Board members and senior administration.
Who Should Attend:
New and veteran Board Presidents, Chairs of the Committee on Trustees, and other key Board-committee leaders should attend. This workshop is also ideal for Head/Board teams.
