|I have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season. Good health, family, friends, clients, the World Series Champion Cardinals. And the dozens of holiday cookies you’ll hopefully be sending my way. I’m also thankful for the opportunity to be involved in the work of the organized bar. And at this time of year, I am especially grateful for the executive directors and other bar staff with whom I work. These are vitally important relationships that I take for granted too often, but they make the bar work worthwhile.|
In the spirit of tending to our important relationships, this issue of BoardLink highlights some of the ways successful bars cultivate a strong board-executive director partnership. A good partnership doesn’t just happen. It requires our time and attention, but it’s well worth the investment.
Happy holidays, and best wishes for a prosperous year ahead!
