Every chorus goes through a number of transitions. The musical ones often delight the ear and make our music exciting and inspirational. The transition from a working to governing board can be just the same - eventually. This webinar will discuss all the growing pains and celebrations of transitioning from a Board that does all the behind the scenes activities of the chorus to a Board that oversees the big picture. The roles of staff, singers, and the Board, finding Board members, the Board Chair's role, and more will be discussed. Plus, submit your questions in advance to make this webinar your own. If your organization is going through "ch-ch-ch-changes," this is for you!
