Join Adele Cehrs, CEO of When and How Agency, crisis communications expert and author, as well as Chip Massey, former FBI hostage negotiator and special agent, for a 45-minute webinar on practical ways to keep your board and members calm regarding COVID-19.
Associations need visionaries to provide breakthrough ideas for their members. But too often, when such employees are found and hired, their tenure is much shorter than anticipated! (And maybe it's happened to you!) Bill Jerome and Curt Powell, authors of "The Disposable Visionary: a survival guide for change agents," have spent over 10 years studying the paradox of why organizations say they want to change agents and then terminate them when they persistently challenge the status quo. They will share their findings and the keys to successfully fighting internal politics and creating an association that empowers and supports new ideas and innovation.
This two-part session will examine how tools associated with StrengthFinder 2.0 can help identify and build leaders at every level in an organization and create positive team habits for staff and volunteers.
Collaboration, decision making, communication, influence skills, and conflict management. These are just a few of the critical skills needed for effective leaders and successful organizations. This presentation will include examples of specific leadership development strategies that engage and develop leaders to ensure that the organization has the talent they need to deliver results today and in the future.
During this webinar, Sherry Budziak, CEO of .orgSource and Kevin Ordonez, President, .orgSource will discuss how being a digital leader has never been more urgent for associations to remain relevant. Adapting an integrated digital strategy and the way you work can make the difference between business continuity and a meltdown.
In the third decade of the 21st century, association boards will have no choice but to confront serious challenges — including AI/automation, the climate crisis and economic inequality — that will have a profound impact on their stakeholders’ well-being. These unforgiving conditions make it crucial for boards to perform different work in a different way and at the highest possible level. In this webinar, participants will learn why the duty of foresight lives at the center of a more generative integration of stewardship, governing and foresight, and how it can inspire boards to focus their attention on understanding, anticipating and preparing their organizations, stakeholders and fields for a full range of plausible futures.
Racism is a public health issue, with significant impacts to health and well-being. Public health, healthcare professional and physicians know firsthand the impacts that long-standing discriminatory structures and institutionalized racism have on health outcomes. This has been particularly pronounced throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and documented by federal agencies including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Join Aletha Mayank, MD, MPH, AMA’s Chief Health Equity Officer and Group Vice President as she discusses the roles institutions have played in fostering, exacerbating, and perpetuating racism and other forms of oppression, and how medical societies can work with members, other professionals and communities to make significant and lasting change.
If you are thinking of becoming a new Executive Director/CEO, or perhaps you are new to the position, this webinar is for you. First-time CEOs need to hit the ground running, tackling the many varied responsibilities and complex issues the head of an association confronts. Do these things well and you lay the groundwork for success; not so well and you might not survive to enjoy your first anniversary at the helm.
Although the nuances of working in the top staff position vary from one association to the next, you can prepare yourself by understanding a number of CEO requirements, responsibilities, and expectations and skills. You will learn the importance of knowing what you are walking into, culture, working with staff, embracing good governance, and working with a Board.
Beth Brooks, CAE, will tell you what to expect, and prepare for. If you are working for (or hope to work for a smaller staffed association), this is the ideal session for you).
