Resources For Working With Boards

HERO Team / Sarah Myers on Friday, January 3, 2014 at 12:00:00 am 

Chambers commonly have questions about working with board members. Common questions include "How do I orient my new board members?" and "How do I manage conflicts of interest on my board?" or "How can I effectively work with my new board chair?" ACCE's HERO portal contains resources to address these questions and more!

Books in the ACCE Store:

Where do you go and what resources do you use for your chamber's strategic planning process? One place to turn and return to is ACCE's Strategic Planning Chamberpedia page from the HERO portal. We have put together a collection of resources on strategic planning and our page specifically address available Online Resources and Examples, working Samples of Strategic Plans from our members, Presentations from the ACCE 2013 Convention, and Articles from previous issues of ACCE's Chamber Executive magazine. Just want to get your feet wet? Check out the Strategic Planning Samples from the ACCE Samples Library.

Like all our Chamberpedia pages and in our Samples Library, we invite and welcome your contributions to help us continue to grow and expand on these valuable resources. Have a sample Strategic Plan or go-to resource you use at your chamber? Let us know by emailing hero@acce.org or visit Ask ACCE to connect with more ACCE resources.

The HERO team can also prepare a customized Operations Survey PowerPoint presentation for your chamber. This presentation is great for planning purposes and provides a way to show your board or staff how your chamber compares to other chambers across the country. This PowerPoint presentation, customized with your chamber's logo, includes all of the charts and graphs from the 2012-2013 Operations Survey report. Your chamber's survey responses and calculated measures are plotted on each chart.  This is a visually appealing graphical representation of your chamber's membership statistics, financial indicators, and operating ratios relative to chambers across the country.  The presentation can be purchased anytime. Available now at ACCE's Bookstore.
