Free, registration is suggested but not required

Borg Warner Conference Room, Tompkins County Public Library,
E. Green St. at S. Cayuga St., Ithaca (driving and access directions below)
Presented by the Human Services Coalition
Co-sponsored by the Tompkins County Public Library

Come and network with your colleagues from other area not-for-profit boards. Share insights about what works – and what
doesn’t. New, experienced, and yet-to-be board chairs will have an opportunity to discuss important issues in a round table
format. Areas of focus for this session include:

  • Evaluating the chief executive
  • Evaluating board performance
  • Succession planning – both agency and board leadership
  • …and whatever else is on your mind!

Helpful, practical handouts will be provided. That said, this session will belong to the participants. We want to provide you
an opportunity to gather, share, and compare notes.
