Pick Your Battles with Association Boards



I don’t know about you but my working with association boards occasionally resulted in disagreements over policies, programs or funding.

The other day someone shared Jonathan Kozol’s quote:

“Pick battles big enough to matter, small enough to win.”

That is something every association executive should have posted on his/her office and/or bulletin board!

When preparing for board meetings – especially when we were making major proposals – my former boss always reminded us that we should not be so connected with a concept that we couldn’t live if the board rejected the idea.

Good advice for all of us working in association management.
