If you do, when was the last time you looked at it?” ” — as if the only reason why an organization is struggling is because it doesn’t have a strategic plan or isn’t using it.

Why Is Association Governance Restructure So Hard? Here’s Why It Shouldn’t Be.

World Class Boards

There are great books on governance that tell big boards to downsize; shift to competency-based, rather than constituency or geography-based selection system; be nimble, responsive and strategic; and select the best people for the job, not just those who “worked their way through the positions and did their time.” These aren’t radical ideas; they’ve become mainstream.
