Be an effective Chair!

You're in the hot seat... now what?!

Register for this Webinar and lead with confidence!

Being a good Chair doesn't mean taking over meetings. It means facilitating discussion.

Learn to create an atmosphere where board members can debate, struggle with issues, reach compromise and, at times, to agree to disagree.

This Webinar is great for:

  • Anyone who's thinking about becoming a not-for-profit Chair
  • New board members who want to understand the role of the Chair and how to work well with their own leader

Please note: You don't have to be an elected board director or an ICDA Member to attend this Webinar. Come one, come all!

Learn how to:

  • Clearly define the purpose and rules of your meetings and communication
  • Encourage and facilitate diversity on your board
  • Ensure that everyone knows the rules of the meeting
  • Be democratic, while remaining in control
  • Deal with conflict and difficult board members
