Education Session

Board Readiness to Consider Merger, Acquisition, and Affiliation Opportunities
Tuesday, April 4 | 4:00 – 5:00 pm

“How will our organization deliver on our mission in the future?” This is the key question Boards of Directors should be asking themselves in this time of great challenges and change. Senior management must set the table for a robust consideration of options, including affiliations, mergers and acquisitions. In this session we’ll examine case studies to illustrate the importance of early Board education in a consolidation-heavy market and deliver a customizable tool to use with your Board for future discussion and planning. By taking the right steps now, organizations can be assured a position of strength should acquisition or sponsorship transition possibly be in your organization’s future.
