Description: Leading effective board meetings requires strong leadership, strategic vision, and the ability to pull together members of a team. FSBA’s Chairmanship Academy prepares you for this new role. Board members receive tips, tactics, and techniques to build effective governance teams, conduct meaningful meetings, and fulfill governance responsibilities while focusing efforts to improve student learning and achievement.

This workshop will address:

  • The role of the board chair
  • Managing the agenda
  • Strategies to forge an effective team
  • Strategies and techniques for dealing with difficult meetings.

Please Note: Parliamentary Procedure will not be included in the 4-hour training session. However, we invite you to join us for a deeper dive into Parliamentary Procedure during a special session scheduled for Friday morning titled “Navigating the Intersection of Parliamentary Procedure, Florida Sunshine Law, and Ethics: A Comprehensive Guide.” Your attendance at this session is highly encouraged and valued.

FSBA realizes that chairs have faced many challenges running meetings this past year. Time will be spent providing tips and tools to help members navigate through future meetings.
