Presenter: Michael Daigneault, CCD, CEO and co- founder and CEO of Quantum Governance, L3C.

Description: The most important obligations of credit union leaders are to ensure that their credit union is being governed effectively, that they are meeting appropriate legal standards and balancing the fiscal responsibilities of both growth and mission success. 

An important tool to determine the governance effectiveness of your credit union is to conduct a regular assessment of the board and its committees, as well as the quality of the board’s relationship with the CEO and his/her management team. 

Hosted by Quantum Governance CEO Michael Daigneault, this seminar will thoughtfully review the numerous methods, tools and approaches that are available to your credit union to conduct governance and leadership assessments.
