Chapters vs. National: Combat the Conflict

Webinar • Thursday, December 21, 2017 • 2:00- 3:30 PM ET | Qualifies for 1.5 CAE credits

For ages, the association community has accepted it as given that chapters often spar with the national organization. But in today’s increasingly competitive nonprofit environment, letting that battle continue puts everything from membership to mission at risk.

It’s critical to understand what’s causing friction. Plus, you must use the right processes and tactics to defuse conflicts before they create a rift that ultimately can’t be fixed.

Now, let an expert show you how to use tools ranging from governance to technology so you can quickly get chapters and national working together as never before.
