2019 Workshop for Board Professionals

April 12 - 14, 2019
Orlando, FL

Build on your expertise, enhance your understanding of governance, and strengthen your role as a board professional. Held in conjunction with AGB’s National Conference on Trusteeship, the Workshop for Board Professionals is open to those professionals in higher education who staff boards of trustees in roles such as assistant to the president, general counsel, secretary of the college, assistant secretary of the board, vice president, and chief of staff.

A planning committee of board professionals—led by committee co-chairs Denise Nelson Nash of Scripps College, Tina Holloway of the University of Texas System, and Rian Curley of California Lutheran College—developed the program. This year, for the second time, the committee solicited proposals for sessions. The program is comprised of concurrent and plenary sessions, roundtables, reception, and various social networking activities to ensure that the program delivers support, information, and professional growth to those in the profession.

Topics include:

  • Diversity and inclusion on the board
  • Effective collaboration between the BP, cabinet, and trustees
  • Great apps to help you in your board work
  • Becoming an effective leader as a board professional
  • Board basics—from orientation to committee meetings
  • Speed mentoring
