What Association Board Members and Staff are Saying

I am trying to move my board to Stages 5 and 6, as I came in 2.5 years ago to a mess which they didn’t even realize they had. I am hoping I can share some of your information to move them forward and help them understand how to not keep defaulting to the things as before. Truly appreciate the information.

This is absolutely the best and most useful book on association board governance I have ever read. It is particularly useful for small and medium-size associations which comprise the vast majority of associations in existence.

Whenever I read something Jeff wrote or hear him speak, I say “of course. . . I knew that” or “I should have thought of that” – because it makes eminent sense.  He has a magical ability to take a concept (that is likely complex) and reframe it in terms that make you say, “Now I get it.”
