ACHD Governance Resources & Tool Kit

Governance Toolkit

The ACHD Governance Toolkit includes six recorded webinars and detailed electronic discussion guides to encourage and support healthcare districts to enhance their governance models and practices. The six topics addressed in depth through this toolkit are:

  1. Community Engagement
  2. Balancing Governance & Management
  3. Board Orientations
  4. Strategic Planning
  5. Board Self-Assessments
  6. Board Education Programming

Each of the programs consist of an approximately 15-minute video with a downloadable slide deck, and an in-depth discussion guide to stimulate healthy conversations between the CEO and the board about practical ways to collaborate more effectively and efficiently.

Your district will take away valuable information on each topic, such as why the topic is important, common issues or challenges that arise when addressing the issue, various ways to be more successful in the area, and more.
