Tips for Board Members

At a recent Special District Leadership Academy (SDLA) Conference, we gathered some tips for new board members from our  attendees and instructors. Attend the SDLA Conference closest to you for more great information on all aspects of special district governance including: how to work as a team; the roles of board and staff; attributes and characteristics of highly effective boards; how culture, norms, values, and operating style influence the district; specific jobs the board must perform; how individual values, skills, and knowledge help to shape how effective boards operate; and much more!

Is your district budget under $10 million? You may qualify for scholarship funds through the Special District Leadership Foundation to attend this event. Apply today!
