Most board members today played critical roles during the Great Recession, have overseen a change in CEOs, and now find themselves navigating an increasingly complex and unpredictable confluence of external variables. The potential role and capability of boards in the 2020s will undoubtedly be informed by the last ten years of governance practices. Many credit unions are preparing for a continued need to evolve their governance practices to meet the future needs of their more strategically capable organization. The pace of change will continue, one way or another. During this webinar, we will outline how several credit unions are preparing themselves today for the required governing role tomorrow.
