Building on the previous research of member-serving association boards highlighted in What Makes High-Performing Boards, authors Beth Gazley and Katha Kissman focus on the stages and processes CEOs and their staff used to transform boards--bringing about significant changes in governance practices that had some positive effect--in this latest installment of governance research funded by the ASAE Foundation.

The authors explore in-depth the actions a board can take to achieve desired results including techniques for altering expectations and changing bylaws, structures, policies, and roles.

In addition, the book

  • shares the actual tools and activities used by 85 transformed associations
  • emphasizes diagnosis and problem solving
  • tells you how to get the most from assessment and evaluation
  • and, provides strategies and resources for success

This book, with its compelling stories, examples, and grounded research, should accompany you on your path to good governance.
