ONBOARDING NEW BOARD MEMBERS
Wednesday, July 25, 2018 7:00 PM Location to be announced

A proactive approach to onboarding new members sets the tone and positions the entire board for success. Management companies are an important partner in empowering new board members and helping them learn the ropes. Management Executive Dan Wurtzel will walk participants through best practices of onboarding new members.
