Why is Foresight the Future of Governing?

For associations, the future of governing must be different than its past, and now is the moment to begin creating it. Association boards, chief staff executives and other governing contributors have a unique opportunity to work together and design a more generative integration of stewardship, governing and foresight that can strengthen board performance as well as prepare their associations, stakeholders and broader industry and professional systems to thrive in a world experiencing transformation.

In this special Association Chat, KiKi interviews Jeff De Cagna, executive advisor for Foresight First LLC and author of the new eBook, Foresight is The Future of Governing: Building Thrivable Boards, Stakeholders and Systems for the 21st Century. 

(The eBook is available as a free download at

Among the questions KiKi and Jeff will discuss:

  • Why is board attention the most important and finite resource every association must manage with care?
  • How can boards and chief staff executives think in a new way about what it means to govern?
  • What can associations do today to begin creating a different future of governing?
