At the heart of my quest to join a board was a desire to connect with my community, meet a new group of passionate people, support an organization whose work I cared deeply about and to learn, learn, learn. I am not embarrassed to confess that my motives were not entirely altruistic either. In my current role at Vantage Point, I oversee our membership and act as a project manager but one of my core strengths is my ability to strategize. Acting as a board member has allowed me to enjoy taking a high level perspective on issues, be involved in bigger picture discussions, and steward the organization’s course. It has also allowed me to benefit from the mentorship of other board members, in areas such as our financial status and my fiduciary duties as a board member, which has greatly contributed to my development.


Juliana Laing, one of our local governance experts, brings the Board Chair and ED Partnership to life in this month’s podcast. She emphasizes the importance of treating this partnership like many other key relationships in life, beginning with a strong foundation of trust with a willingness to tackle tough issues in a timely and open way.
