Build on your expertise, enhance your understanding of governance, and strengthen your role as a board professional. Held in conjunction with AGB’s National Conference on Trusteeship, the Workshop for Board Professionals is open to professionals in higher education who staff boards of trustees in such roles as assistant to the president, general counsel, secretary of the college, assistant secretary of the board, vice president, and chief of staff.

Recognizing that no one knows board professionals better than themselves, the program has been developed entirely by board professionals and entirely for board professionals. The content ranges from board professional fundamentals to technology and innovation, from strategic issues to preparing for change. Whatever challenge might be most pressing to you and your situation, you’re guaranteed to find a session or make a connection that helps enhance the already valuable contribution you’re making to your institution and your board. This workshop experience is one that will be interesting and inspiring, educational and enjoyable, and you don’t want to miss out.
