The Power of an Innovative Senior Services Board

Not-for-profit senior living management expect their boards to be forward-thinking, strategic and innovative. Innovation at the board level is a function of various elements, including when there is a defined strategic direction and best practices. So, what does an effective board look like? What are some tools boards can use to remain focused on their organizations’ mission? Does the board or management create the strategic plan? This discussion is designed to create an atmosphere for executive management and board members to gain insights into best practices in their journey towards innovation and strategic thinking.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Defining board member responsibilities such as the board’s role in setting the strategic direction for the organization;
  2. Strategies for board effectiveness while adapting to change and disruption;
  3. Confronting common “tension areas.”

  • Mary Wagner, United Methodist Retirement Communities  and Porter Hills, Board Member
