A Seminar For Current & Future Board Members & Community Leaders

It’s no easy task to begin the evaluation of your current governing documents to determine their applicability in today’s changing association landscape, discover conflicts that need to be corrected or examine the possibility of adopting new WUCIOA provision approved this past July. There are so many elements to consider during this process.

Come join a panel discussion hosted by local association attorneys as they maneuver the maze of possibilities with creating governing document changes. You leave armed with information you need to examine your own documents and make some critical governance decisions.
