Date and time
Thursday 28 June 2018, 09:30-17:00
Learn from one of the most inspirational advisors in the association world how to lead your governing board to articulate and realise its greater purpose. This one-day workshop is for Association Executive Directors who are about to start a transformation process or have already started one and are struggling to articulate a purpose that unites their governing board, office and members, so that:
- More board members are united behind a common cause
- More members contribute to the success of the association
- More funders fund the association
The alternative is division within the Governing Board, between the Governing Board and the office, or between them and the community. Division sabotages change and increases concerns about the organisation’s relevance and sustainability in an ever-changing world.
You will leave with a set of tools and roadmap, personalised to your needs that are guaranteed to succeed. When EASL (the home of hepatology) followed the same approach, their:
- membership increased by 25%
- delegates at their annual conference reached record levels
- monthly journal reached an Impact Factor of over 13
- profit increased by €7 million in 2.5 years
A similar exercise at ESDR (The European Society for Dermatological Research) is leading to an entirely different way to engage young skin scientists and the creation of a new Foundation, which will secure commitments of over €5 million at its launch.
