Association executives are being challenged as never before. 2020 has brought us the triple crises of a global pandemic, recession, and social unrest. Association leaders have had to improvise and strategize to stabilize their organizations, to support the industries and professions they serve, to motivate both volunteers and staff under the most stressful of circumstances, and to transform their organizations to thrive in the post-Covid-19 era. Indeed, we can expect to emerge from the crisis in 2021, but what will the world look like, and how we work with our boards and staff to position our organizations for value and impact in a new landscape?

Today's association CEO’s require a portfolio of strategic skills that will enable them to engage their boards and staff to interpret changes in the environment, to innovate, to create diverse and inclusive organizations, and to test and implement new business models. This speaker will explore key attributes and skills that association leaders will need in the years to come.

This online seminar features facilitated audio content and conversations. Soon after registering, attendees will receive login information from Zoom. Participants will have access to the recorded session, reference materials, and more for up to 30 days following the program.

Registration for this online session will close Wednesday, February 17, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. ET.
