Build on your expertise, enhance your understanding of governance, and strengthen your role as a board professional. Held in conjunction with AGB’s National Conference on Trusteeship, the Workshop for Board Professionals is open to those professionals in higher education who staff boards of trustees in roles such as assistant to the president, general counsel, secretary of the college, assistant secretary of the board, vice president, and chief of staff.
A planning committee of board professionals—led by committee chair Carrie Warren formerly of Metropolitan State University of Denver and vice chairs Denise Nelson Nash of Scripps College and Tina Holloway of the University of Texas System—developed the program. This year, for the first time, the committee solicited proposals for sessions. The program is comprised of concurrent and plenary sessions, roundtables, reception, and various social networking activities to ensure that the program delivers support, information, and professional growth to those in the profession.
