This webinar series provides board chairs information and insight about leading the board in oversight and support responsibilities. Each webinar looks at a dimension of board chair responsibilities and highlights practices for improvement -- improving board chair performance, the performance of the full board, and ultimately the performance of the health center in achieving its mission in the community, which is the passion of all board members.
The first webinar in the series will provide an overview of leadership responsibilities generally expected from board chairs. These include: communicating with the CEO and other board members, guiding/mentoring new committee chairs and new board members, resolving conflicts among board members, and asking tough questions before board decision-making. Understanding expectations is key to preventing confusion, frustration, and chaos.
