In addition to presenting cutting-edge content, the Governance Workshop stimulated my own thinking about improved governance and sparked great conversations with my volunteer leader.

Quality Content

This workshop addresses the unique issues faced by certification governance boards and is designed as an opportunity for the CEO and Board Chair to strengthen their partnership by participating in a dynamic learning environment. The faculty will focus on these four critical areas:

  • The nature of a Certification Board and the Membership Organization or affiliated Education Foundation
  • How do we enforce the tie between learning and assessment?
  • Overcoming political pressure; implementing change while preserving program integrity.
  • What are the credible trends boards should be discussing and taking action on?
