By Richard Paton
Have you ever wanted to measure the true effectiveness of your association? In this book, Richard Paton, President and CEO of the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada and industry author, provides a necessary and practical framework for association and not-for-profit leaders as well as boards of directors and members to assess the true effectiveness of their organizations and determine opportunities for change.
This important publication discusses nine factors that are critical core requirements to the successful and sustainable performance of associations of all sizes and in all industries. Leaders are invited to use these intrinsic factors, plus an aligning “X factor” to determine the strengths and weaknesses of their own associations as a catalyst for creating real value for members and stakeholders.
