The relationship between the executive director and board chair is essential to organizational success. Given that one of the most important activities of a board is the selection and oversight of the organization’s top executive, care must be given to the cultivating and tending of this relationship. 

Communication is especially critical. Both the Board Chair and executive director must communicate clearly, seek understanding of issues, and build trust with each other.

During this workshop, we’ll explore this important relationship with a focus on areas of collaboration and separation, all wrapped in the understanding of mutual expectations.
