We say we want boards to be more strategic. But how can we support this during board discussions that aren’t explicitly about the strategic plan? What are the pitfalls that boards tend to fall into? How can staff help board members stay on track to keep discussions appropriately strategic – without going into the clouds? You will leave this meeting with greater insight as to how to keep your board focused and strategic at all times.


Big Association Trends – From Identification to Innovation

There is no question that these are unprecedented times for associations. It is an era characterized by an increasingly crowded marketplace where stakeholders are demanding tangible – and customized – solutions and support to their professional and business challenges, and where disruptive innovation in communications and technology are the norm. Certainly, associations are facing unprecedented pressure to evolve their structure and business models in ways unimagined by our predecessors. For a growing number, their very existence is at stake.

This interactive session will present key findings from The Portage Group’s 2017 Association Trends Benchmarking Report and share with you not only what are the top-of-mind trends, issues and challenges facing your peers but importantly, what they are doing about it.
