This meeting is designed for those board members who are officers and those who would like to be an officer in the future.
The morning session will focus on the requirements and responsibilities of the President and Secretary. The session is interactive, using hypothetical scenarios to lead discussions on appropriate ways to handle situations in the board room. The participants enjoy the networking and learning how other cooperative boards work.
The afternoon session will begin with a Dr. James Summers from Iowa State University’s College of Business. He will discuss how the board and management have difficult conversations in a positive and productive fashion.
For the final session of the day, Mike Steenhoek with the Soy Transportation Coalition will update us on the impact the spring storms have had on our state’s infrastructure.
