Because the role of Board Chair has a profound impact on a co-op’s success, this program was instituted by popular demand.  The Board Chair-Vice Chair Roundtable provides current and future Chairs with expert counsel on many delicate issues.  With no holds barred, this intimate session serves as an exclusive and professional outlet for candid dialogue where sensitive issues are openly discussed and solutions learned in the boardroom, are shared.  Board Chairs share unique challenges that are consistent, regardless of industry boundaries.  This program crosses industry boundaries and deals with issues common for all, such as:

  • Engaging every board member
  • Managing challenging board members fairly and professionally
  • How to deal swiftly with contested issues
  • How to intelligently tackle volatile issues to avoid contention
  • Navigating conflicts of interests
  • Managing CEO and member relationships
  • How to know when to “Hold’em or Fold’em”

MAC-Ed’s Board Chair-Vice Chair Roundtable offers practical solutions to tough challenges, and is limited to current and future Board Chairs.  Policies, bylaws, processes, structures, people and systems need to be aligned to support and reinforce the strategy of every co-op.  It is the responsibility of the Chair and Board to see it through, to fruition.

  1. I just found out about the round table. Nov. 16 is a scheduled board meeting and the flights will not allow the right timing. I have read the course description and know my participation would be very timely and valuable. When is it offered again so I can mark my calendar?

      The next roundtable will be in November or December of 2017. At this time, we do not have the dates set, but if you want to check back with us in the spring of 2017, we should have that information for you.
      We look forward to having you as an attendee of next year’s roundtable.
