Educational Session: The Power of Innovative Senior Services Boards
Session Date & Time: Monday, May 16, 4:15-5:15 pm (PDT).
Session Description: Not-for-profit senior living management teams expect their boards to be forward-thinking, strategic, and innovative – enabling these same attributes within the organizations they serve. Innovation at the board level is a function of various elements – including when there is a defined strategic direction and best practices in place. What are the roles of the board? What does an effective board look like? What are some tools boards can use to remain focused on their organizations’ mission? How should boards respond when facing unexpected changes? Related to strategy, specifically: Is strategic thinking a strategy? Does the board or management create the strategic plan? Join us with board and executive management representatives of one or more senior services providers, for an informative discussion that will explore elements of an innovative board.
