CEO Network Series #1: Leading with Your Board in Times of Change

Friday, May 29, 2020 8:30am - 10:00am CDT

Join your fellow CEOs and foundation presidents for a series of 3 conversations on the theme, Leading Through Change in Uncertain Times. Through each discussion, we will take a deep dive into an essential leadership topic including finances, human resources and board governance. Each session, facilitated by MCF President Susie Brown, will combine a mix of expert-led presentations and peer-to-peer conversations. Hosted via Zoom, attendees will have opportunities to talk in small group chat rooms and large group exchanges. Conversations will not be recorded to provide a safe space for critical conversations in these uncertain times.

Leading with Your Board in Times of Change will be led by Anne Wallestad, President and CEO, BoardSource and Kevin Walker, President and CEO, Northwest Area Foundation. During this session we’ll discuss the complementary roles of the CEO and board in anticipating and adapting to a rapidly changing environment. The board and CEO must act together as strong allies in times of uncertainty. Join us to talk about ways CEOs and boards can maintain focus on achieving the shared goal of advancing the organization’s mission and vision through times of change.
