Here's what one ELEA member said about "Creating an Effective Board"

"I just wanted you to know that the "Creating an Effective Board" webinar was very good. I thought it was worth the time and money. The speaker was knowledgeable. His PowerPoint was very helpful. Even though it wasn't specifically about a school board, the information was definitely worthwhile and will be easy to carry over. I got some good ideas that will be helpful particularly about doing an Orientation with a new board member and what information to make available to them. I would recommend this webinar and look forward to other topics offered by ALDE. I so appreciate them offering these opportunities to ELEA!" Director, Columbus, OH."
