A new compendium of articles by Bob Harris, CAE, focuses on the and role and functioning of high-performance association boards. Potentially the best advice according to Harris is to realize that the MISSION is the destination and the STRATEGIC PLAN is the roadmap or GPS. Between the destination and the journey, much can be achieved. But governance is open misinterpretation and misunderstanding. This compilation of 19 articles touches on topics such as board size, director evaluations, auditing the strategic plan, and association values. They are intended to spark conversations and support continuous improvement.
