What a long day! We started at 8 am and finished at 9pm. Mostly it was the retreat today. It was a very good session and I got a lot of very good ideas for working with other boards that I think will be helpful. It certainly will be helpful to our own work on the Board.
This evcenings session was time spent working with a consultant on policy governance. The Board is well on its way to adopting this model and has begun working on it it in earnest. We sahll see how it works with an organizartion in which the CEO is elected and accountable to the member congregations. I shall keep you informed.
