Original Air Date: December 4, 2019

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

Description: This webinar will address one of the leading concerns of CEOs and board directors alike—board succession. We’ll discuss what diversity really means and examine why it’s important to your credit union—beyond the perceived value and explore strategies for truly diversifying your board. We will consider term limits and industry-wide limitations as the demand for talent grows. We will also explore the qualities of the modern credit union “dream team” and strategies for recruiting directors that will govern your credit union into the future. 

Key Takeaways:

In addition to profiling the board member of the future, participants will learn how to talk to their fellow board members about succession planning and term limits—an often times sensitive subject. Participants will receive a board member job description and tools for developing a succession plan or strengthening and updating their existing one.
