"EFFECTIVE BOARD GOVERNANCE no. 6 - Selecting the CEO: Your Million Dollar Responsibility"
with Ken Haycock
________________________


Selecting a CEO truly is a million dollar responsibility when you consider salary and benefits over an average period in the position. Boards and senior staff spend hundreds of hours on other million dollar decisions such as assessing new vendors and automation programs but spend comparatively little time on CEO selection. Like most functions, selection of CEOs has been studied and monitored.

Key Topics to Explore
*  The key steps in the process will be presented together with what works and what doesn't:
* Preparation: clarify roles and relationships; determine whether to engage a consultant; develop the profile (key questions to ask); review existing position and job descriptions;
* Recruitment: advertising; actively recruiting quality talent (no, they do not come to you, in spite of what you might think);
* Selection: making the first cut; making the second cut; preliminary in-depth interviews; reference checking on-list and off- list' legal issues; connections between selection practices and performance on the job;
* Decision: candidate profiles; on-site interviews in context; other on-site activities; making the recommendation; making the decision;
* Next Steps: orientation and training; assessment and evaluation.

Like other million dollar decisions, Human Resources Management requires professional guidance using a rich research-base. Why would this critical area be left to intuition and experience? Essential steps and checkpoints for every Board.

Ken Haycock has provided training in effective governance for several provincial and state associations, for directors and for individual boards across the country. His presentation is informed by a recent research study conducted on high priority training needs and the roles of the director, chair, municipality and provincial association in addressing those needs.

A unique perspective on library board governance
What constitutes effective governance? What does the research say about high performing boards? What are the specific criteria by which you judge how well you are doing as a board? What are the implications for you as a trustee, for your chair and for your CEO/director?

Ken Haycock has provided training in effective governance for several provincial and state associations, for directors and for individual boards across the country. His presentation is informed by a recent research study conducted on high priority training needs and the roles of the director, chair, municipality and provincial association in addressing those needs.

The Benefits
Participants will understand the key criteria for board effectiveness and be able to analyze their own board functions from this perspective. The result will be a more effective board with a clearly defined focus on community development, higher level library planning and allocation of resources and regular evaluation of programs and services. The board will also have a higher profile in the community and recruit new members based on identified needs.

Who Should Participate?
This series will appeal to trustees, directors, chief executive officers and others concerned with effective governance. Those serving on other public boards will also find the program of value.

Key Topics You Will Explore
The research-based criteria for effective boards will be introduced and explored:

    * Develop a clear statement of mission and purpose;
    * Select and evaluate the CEO;
    * Articulate roles and relationships;
    * Plan strategically;
    * Allocate resources to reflect board goals;
    * Monitor and evaluate accountability;
    * Maintain legal and ethical integrity;
    * Ensure public standing and credibility;
    * Recruit new members aggressively;
    * assess Board performance.
