How to Create Your Own Personal Board of Directors


How do organizations and entrepreneurs succeed? Is it luck?...money?...reputation? Maybe a bit of all three, but most do not get ahead without the help of others. The synergy that is present when many minds and talents come together usually propels all involved to new heights. Learn how to intentionally assemble your own personal “Board of Directors” to help you navigate the business world with success in mind! Bring your questions and curiosities as we explore together. Join us after the seminar for a networking reception and plated lunch.

Association Management Company (AMC) owners and senior staff will gather in Charlottesville to explore issues they all face: structuring staff and managing turnover, determining whether to take on a new client, and nurturing relationships with existing clients. These member-led sessions, worth a total of 4.25 CAE credits, will be enhanced by the more informal exchanging of ideas over a roundtable discussion, networking lunch, and tour of the beautiful Omni hotel adjacent to the bustling pedestrian mall in the heart of Charlottesville.
