The 2021 Board Agenda

March 17, 2021
12:00 PM-1:00 PM

Texas Hospital Association


Program Description

Hospital and health system boards quickly adapted their governance practices as the nation went into shutdown mode in March 2020. Board meeting schedules, board retreats, planned agendas and continuing education sessions were upended. Previously scheduled board work, such as strategic planning, were postponed. As the pandemic continues with its many medical and societal implications, boards must thoughtfully consider and prioritize the most important areas on which to spend board meeting time in 2021.
The pandemic has emphasized the need for intentional board discussion and deliberation on numerous key items such as board and CEO succession planning, formation of new strategic partnerships, CEO performance evaluation, financial strategies and workforce needs. The presentation will identify discussion/decision items that should be on each board’s agenda during 2021. Ms. Russel will explain why each of these subjects is of prime importance to the board, and she will offer different approaches for the board to tackle this work.
