UPDATE: Our October 6th date is currently full, we are working another session on Oct 7th.
Presented in partnership with the Town of Vail
We at Vail Valley Partnership are REALLY excited about these guests. We've been following the work of Dr Jill McCrory and Dr Steve Swafford with Leadership Outfitters. These are two nationally recognized educators and they join us for a conversation about a one day program they will be leading called Board Service Basics. This is coming directly from our interaction with business asking for more community diversity on their boards as well as Community wanting to serve. We're so excited to have Jill and Steve and their expertise.
I’ve added some information below but I’m particularly excited about the 2:30 portion when we dive into local examples. You know it’s a unique place and previous valley examples help.
What we’re planning covering:
The “Nuts & Bolts” (organizational structure, governance, tax status, financial documents, Robert’s Rules of Order, etc)
Roles & expectations of a board member
Questions to ask when you’re approached to sit on a board of directors
Finding your passion & strengths as they relate to board service
Understanding communication styles, emotional intelligence and motivating factors
Individual & organizational values
Managing healthy conflict
Working in and with teams
October 6th (FULL, waitlist in process with possibility of additional session October 7th)
