Embracing the Board’s Duty of Foresight

Jeff De Cagna

For association and non-profit decision-makers, the powerful forces of societal transformation create both opportunity and responsibility. The opportunity is to imagine an amazing future for those they serve. The responsibility is to take action to prepare their organizations and stakeholders for whatever may come next. Through the consistent practice of foresight, association boards and their staff partners can collaborate to explore emerging directions and make the bold decisions required to create the future.

In this session, participants will learn about the “duty of foresight,” why it is so critical to building their organizations to thrive and how they can help their boards fully embrace it.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This session is exclusively for associations and non-profit organizations.
