In the State of Credit Union Governance 2020, Quantum Governance and its colleagues found that nearly half of all Board members reported being ineffective at using an effective process to orient new board members to the work and dynamics of their boards. How effective are you? 

Now, you can turn to the experts who wrote the book on onboarding to help you.

Quantum Governance, authors of the CUES publication Director Onboarding Tool Kit, which is available only to CUES Unlimited and Unlimited+ members, can develop and deliver a customized virtual Board Orientation program for your board’s newest directors. 

Focused on key governance best practices including the definition of governance; the roles of the board, board members and officers; the balance of authority between boards and CEOs; strategic planning and more, this new offering can be customized to include information pertinent to your credit union, too.
