Finally, our great work together as a Council reflects perhaps the most impactful but complex example of organizational collaboration. Our deliberative body is of far greater value than the sum of its councillors and component bodies. Listening and learning from one another guides our thinking, which results in well-considered guidance for the Board of Directors.
Vision, unique knowledge, and collaborative thinking are all qualities of an effective Board member. I have vision for the College and our specialty, unique knowledge that will complement the Board’s current talents, and a collaborative approach to all that I do.
