The Board of Directors Orientation Toolkit shares the key elements of an orientation for new members of your association’s board of directors. With this toolkit, you can customize an orientation program that’s right for your board of directors and your association’s governance model.
These elements were collected by the Association Executives Committee’s Board Orientation Work Group, which developed this toolkit, and include sample materials for association executives (AEs) to conduct live or online orientations for new board members.
Within each section are various elements from which you can pick and choose to customize your orientation program. Some elements in each section will be “non-negotiable” items. These “non-negotiables” should be incorporated into your orientation to avoid liability against your association.
