Do you ever feel bogged down in trying to keep up with day-to-day tasks or meetings and push projects to the back burner that don't feel pressing or no one else seems to be tracking on? As leaders who may wear many hats, and who juggle a lot of needs and decisions, it can be hard to carve out the time necessary to be an intentional leader. Finding the space to set goals, conduct executive, board, or staff reviews, update organizational policies, develop or update onboarding procedures for members and board, plus a whole lot more that falls on your plate can feel impossible! Together, we will explore some innovative ways that associations are leading intentionally, and share tools and resources to help achieve both personal and professional fulfillment as an intentional leader.
