Exceptional association leadership can be aspirational but should also be achievable. Developed by an NAR Association Executives Committee workgroup with input from AEs and volunteer leaders, the new “Principles of Association Volunteer and Staff Leadership” is a guide that staff and volunteer leaders at all levels can strive toward. The 10 principles—which are simple and direct—focus on communication, relationships, conduct, respect, strategic planning, governance, active listening, orientation and training, future leaders and fiduciary duties. Add them to your leadership orientation, training and planning opportunities.
