Speaker: Emily Rogers


Join the River City Express Network for a free Zoom presentation with Emily E. Rogers, M.P.P. from Tampa, Florida!  

As women in business, our viewpoint matters – especially in the boardroom! What has prevented you from serving on a local board of directors? Have you served before and fear another dysfunctional board experience? Don’t be deterred from serving! Join us for an informative and interactive session covering topics related to Board Acumen and Decorum. Emily will cover the benefits of serving on a board, board member responsibilities and board culture. Each attendee will also walk away with actionable tips on that most intimidating topic: parliamentary procedure!
