Are you new to a Board? Have you just been asked to serve on another committee? Do you need to write a D’var Torah for your meeting tonight? Need advice on managing a hectic meeting? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you will probably find yourself researching “best practices” on Google, or another one of your favorite search engines.
Instead of relying on unknown websites, look no further than the ASSOCIATED’s Center for Community Engagement & Leadership’s (CCEL) new Online Resource Library. Whether you want to provide training to your board or are looking for an icebreaker or Jewish quote/story to use at a board retreat, the Online Resource Library is filled with valuable resources and tools that will benefit our dedicated community professionals and lay leaders.
The Online Resource Library includes information relating to:
- Maximizing Board Effectiveness
- Meeting Engagement
- Board/Board Member Assessment
- Navigating the Lay/Pro Relationship
- Nomination & Succession Planning
