Association boards have a duty of foresight.

With this controversial assertion in a 2014 article in Associations Now, the official publication of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE), Jeff De Cagna AIMP FRSA FASAE, executive advisor for Foresight First LLC, questioned association management orthodoxy by arguing that his community's boards of directors have a unique and critical responsibility to learn as much as possible with the future.

Ten years after the original article, Jeff argues we should continue to view the duty of foresight as a radical idea that challenges boards to stand up for different and better futures for stakeholders and successors.

Join us on Wednesday, May 22 at 9 am PDT when Jeff will discuss the implications of the duty of foresight and offer perspectives from his ongoing conversations with boards and other senior decision-makers, including how to confront orthodoxy and navigate resistance.

After Jeff's presentation, IFTF's COO Rachel Hatch will moderate a group conversation about how boards can ensure their organizations become future-adaptive. Please join us to share your thoughts!
