Your year-end campaign is probably well underway, and hopefully you’ve got the staff holiday party scheduled, but what else can we focus on as we head into the new year. Is your organization ready for 2017?

Join Gene Takagi and Michele Berger of NEO Law Group for a list of 10 tips and ideas to get yourself ready for 2017. Gene and Michele will discuss what the board should do before rewarding an executive with a year-end bonus, development of next year's board calendar, the increasing importance of state registrations, and other items to consider or complete before year-end.
