2022 Board Professionals Conference
March 29–31, 2022 | Virtual Event

Break through today’s challenges and rise to tomorrow’s opportunities.

The 2022 AGB Board Professionals Conference will set the table for the governance work of strategic transformation. Most colleges and universities will need to adjust course in meaningful ways in the aftermath of 2020–2021 to become both more financially secure and more effective in serving students and society. In addition to facing new imperatives, most boards and leaders have also developed new capabilities, and in many cases they have a fresh, aspirational sense of what might be accomplished together. This year’s event will feature an unparalleled group of experts and thought leaders for learning and exchange as AGB members set new directions for thousands of colleges and universities.

To that end, we invite board professionals—those in higher education who staff boards of trustees—to join us for the annual Board Professionals Conference. This event, comprehensive program that it is, provides a unique opportunity for those in the role to build on their expertise, enhance their understanding of governance, and strengthen their role as they prepare to face the challenges—and seize the opportunities—of today.

“The opportunity to network with other board professionals while broadening your knowledge of the higher education landscape is invaluable.”

Claire Smith

Executive Assistant to the President, Trinity University
Assistant Secretary to the Board of Trustees, Trinity University

All the elements of a conference—convening online.

  • Essential content from recognized experts, including keynotes, plenary sessions, concurrent sessions, and small-group discussions
