What strategies are successful in managing your consortium board through changes in membership and leadership? How do you bring new members up to speed? And how can you energize and engage your board? For this ACL webcast (now a podcast), we assembled an expert panel representing over 30 years of consortium leadership. They offer their take on one of the greatest challenges to consortium impact and success: transition. The dialog is guided by our guest moderator, Dr. Cathy Trower, a consultant, coach, and author of The Practitioner’s Guide to Governance as Leadership: Building High Performing Nonprofit Boards.
