Term Limits for Board of Directors to be Examined at Upcoming Conference
Monday, July 28, 2014 6:45 AM

Term limits for board of directors is a sensitive topic. There are some who believe term limits would help bring more diversity and fresh perspectives to the board, and others who are concerned that term limits might result in a loss of much-needed experience and organizational memory. John Vardallas, a senior faculty strategist with Southwest CUNA Management School, will address the pros and cons of term limits at the Cornerstone Credit Union League’s Leadership Conference & Expo Sept. 4-6 in San Antonio.

In this thought-provoking session, Vardallas will engage in an interactive discussion with the audience on the advantages and disadvantages of limiting volunteer tenure as a possible solution for transitioning “new blood” into the board/committee volunteer structure.

He will also talk about the importance of credit unions being proactive and prepared for elected leadership changes. Key elements of how management and board can sustain and ensure the success of the credit union through proper succession planning will also be highlighted.

“Authentic Leadership” is the theme for this Sept. 4-6 conference in San Antonio, which features 24 educational sessions, three general sessions, and four best practice panel discussions. At this year’s conference, participants will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge, fine-tune their skillsets, network with their peers, share best practices, and explore available resources and solutions in the Expo Hall.
