The job of the credit union director has evolved rapidly over the relatively short time span of one generation. On the other hand, the governance process is a series of relatively simple steps that directors can learn and use for higher performance. Simple yes … but not always easy.

In this workshop, Tim Harrington and Kevin Smith will guide you through the TEAM Resources governance process step by step to help you understand the various roles of modern, high performing directors. They will show you the roles of the board and how to manage them, by focusing on the strategic and eliminating the operational. They will teach you how to maintain fiduciary oversight through efficient reporting, while keeping the bulk of your time facing forward towards the big vision of what your credit union could be.

Over the course of this workshop, we will cover the following:

  • Essence of a board
  • Board orientation
  • Effective governance steps
    • Board boundaries and governance process
    • Relationship with the CEO and board
    • Strategic goals – ends
    • CEO boundaries
  • Board succession planning and recruitment
  • Governance spectrum
  • Division of roles and responsibilities
  • CEO oversight
  • Recommended committees
  • Sharing Information with the board
  • The role of the board chair
  • Executive sessions - why to have them and best practices
  • Board self-evaluations

Workshop attendees will also get access to the recently published Basic Credit Union Governance Guide, written by your workshop facilitators from TEAM Resources, Tim Harrington and Kevin Smith.
