• The 2022 Symposium for Chief Staff and Chief Elected Officers – March 24-25

    In this highly anticipated 2-day symposium, CEOs and their newly appointed board leadership lay practical foundations to build a strong working relationship and lead their organizations forward. Facilitated by Glenn Tecker and Donna Dunn, CAE, board officers and chief executives will roll up their sleeves to build a common understanding and commitment to the key components of successful governance, strategy and organization. 

    Chief staff and chief elected officers will work together to:

    • Define annual priorities
    • Learn how to work better together
    • Discover the value of informed policy and strategy as primary tools of leadership

    The CEO Symposium is designed specifically for leadership teams from trade, professional, credentialing, and philanthropic associations, including the following:

    • CEOs/executive directors
    • Current or incoming board chairs and presidents

    “This is an important annual event for our leadership; it is time and money very well invested.” 

    “The  CEO Symposium is a must-attend event to turbocharge your relationship with your volunteer leaders!”

    “The symposium has changed the way I think about association governance, and how a healthy relationship between the senior elected officer and its CEO can drive organizational performance.”
