Getting the Most Out of Your Board Retreats

Friday, March 31, 2023

Event Details

Board retreats are a powerful tool in effective board development and organizational management. They can provide space for developing a compelling vision, establishing shared goals and expectations, and engaging board members. However, too often, they lack key elements leading to missed opportunities and frustration. Join Laurel McCombs from The Osborne Group to make sure your next board retreat is not only productive and enjoyable, but also a strategic part of achieving your organization's goals.
