There will be ample opportunity to discuss your questions. The Trustee Handbook will be provided at the workshop, along with other important resources.
Who Should Attend
All recently elected and appointed trustees should attend the Effective Trusteeship Workshop. Continuing trustees, student trustees, and CEOs are also very welcome, and will gain much from the workshop. Board presidents and vice presidents are encouraged to attend the Effective Trusteeship session with their new trustees and participate in the continuing education sessions or the Board Chair Workshop in the afternoon on Saturday.
