The UNL Nebraska Cooperative Development Center invites you, your fellow board members and general managers to attend this year’s Board of Directors Training. Program Level III is one part in a series of three programs, and should be attended by all directors who are serious about developing their skills and strengthening their organization. It is not necessary to have attended levels I and II prior to this training.
Level III of the NCDC Board of Directors Training Program is designed to help directors establish policies and procedures specifically pertaining to the relationship between the Board and Management. A critical time for any business is when the business is successful enough to move to the point of hiring staff. The role of the Board changes dramatically once staff is hired and the Board members need to recognize and prepare for that change. Level III provides the guidelines to help Board members in making this a successful transition.
Dr. Mike Turner, Professor emeritus of Ag Economics at UNL. Dr. Turner has worked extensively with local board of directors for 35 plus years. He has worked with boards on issues such as strategic planning, business development and many other areas.
Ed Woeppel, Education and Program Director for the Nebraska Cooperative Council will also be a part of the program. Ed has spent his entire career in education and for the past seven years has coordinated the delivery of educational programs for the Nebraska Cooperative Council
