The Roundtable will be followed by the popular Leadership Circle for executive level staff. The sessions will be held in the conference room on the second floor of Chestertown’s Town Hall, 118 North Cross Street, Chestertown, MD. Rob Levit, an award-winning nonprofit leader and Licensed Consultant from the Standards for Excellence® Institute, will return as the facilitator. There is no charge to attend.

Participants will leave with refined tools for analyzing and making more effective operations, managerial and governance decisions. 2) Improving Board and Staff Communications. Effective communication between the board and staff is essential for organizational success. During this discussion-based segment, board members will have the opportunity to interact with their staff and with other board members, while learning to overcome communication hurdles.
