Board Meeting Conversations

Unconferences

Unconferences are fast-paced, peer-to-peer discussions where you suggest discussion topics, vote for your favorites, and join the conversations that interest you most. It means you’re spending the entire time talking about exactly the right things for you, not some canned agenda set by meeting planners months in advance.

Show & Tells

A Show & Tell is a casual talk led by a member who walks us through a portion of their corporate social responsibility program. They’re stories about something they tried, a challenge they faced, what went well, what didn’t work, and what they hope to do next.

These are 20 minutes followed by Q&A. These aren’t polished or canned presentations, they’re a conversation and a glimpse behind the scenes of another member’s program.

Member-Led Discussions

We break into small groups where members host short conversations on topics they’ve volunteered to lead. These are discussions, not lectures. Sometimes members kick it off with a short presentation (no slides), and other times everyone dives right in. This is a great opportunity to explore tough questions, share experiences, and get help with specific challenges you’re facing.

Board Roundtable Discussions

We’ll talk about the things that keep leaders like you up at night — the things you can’t ask anywhere else: internal management issues, vendors, unprecedented topics, crisis response, and leadership strategies.

Everyone in the room will be leading a program like yours, with experience and knowledge to share. No vendors. Big companies. Leaders only.

Meal Discussions

Our meals aren’t just breaks, they’re a substantive part of the meeting experience where some of the best conversations happen. Most meetings include breakfast, lunch, and dinner as official parts of the program.

You’ll want to be there on time, and don’t plan on bringing the laptop or opening your inbox. This is a time where we focus on unstructured conversations so you can have great conversations — both personal and business — that build those deep relationships with your fellow members.
