     Northern Florida/South Georgia Chapter Event


You are cordially invited to join members of WCD’s North Florida and South Georgia chapter for our annual meeting in historic Savannah, Georgia.

Nestled among centuries old oak trees on streets lined with brick pavers, we will be transported back in time as we enjoy a group dinner in an 18th century mansion, The Olde Pink House on Thursday, April 20. The next day, members have the choice of visiting one of Savannah’s excellent museums or strolling through the historic market shops before gathering as a group for a lunch.



Meeting Topic:

The High Performing Board

What does it take to build a high-performing board? From the board’s deepening engagement in strategy to board composition and succession planning – getting the right mix of skills, backgrounds, and diversity of perspectives on the board to guide the company forward.

This discussion, facilitated by Susan Angele, Senior Advisor, KPMG’s Board Leadership Center, will feature personal boardroom experiences from WCD members, and will explore key challenges and leading practices in board effectiveness.
