The COVID-19 pandemic affects many facets of associations, particularly in-person meetings and conferences. In this session, Jeffery Tenenbaum, Esq., will cover many of the legal implications involved with this current situation.
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.
The COVID-19 pandemic has not only thrown a huge monkey wrench into associations’ planned in-person meetings and conferences, but has also thrown a big curve ball into association governance. From canceled membership meetings to virtual board meetings to online elections to an inability to meet governance requirements imposed by law, bylaws or policy, associations are struggling to find answers to a host of pressing governance questions. As you navigate these issues for your own association, where do you find these answers, what are practical, workable solutions to these significant challenges, and what will constitute compliance with the law and your own governing documents?
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.
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).
