Frequent board turnover is a characteristic of the club industry that often derails efforts to develop and maintain consistent strategic leadership. The Club Benchmarking Governance Self-Evaluation Survey identifies gaps in board education and alignment and lays a solid foundation for effective annual board orientations and retreats.
Our unique approach to the annual board orientation process focuses on the practical aspects of being a contributing club board member and fulfilling the fiduciary obligations that come with that role. Our goal is to compress the learning curve for board members and drive alignment around best practices across the leadership team. Our virtual or in-person orientation will address:
We believe the cure for the disruption and inconsistency caused by frequent turnover on club boards is regular self-evaluations as part of an effective annual board orientation process.

Relative to other industries, clubs tend to operate in isolation and in the absence of information about club-specific best practices, we see boards filling the void with home-grown practices they either inherited or created from scratch in each new cycle. Our goal is to help boards learn to work together more effectively and to ensure that board members have the knowledge they need to succeed.
