On Friday December 4th, the Chair Development Team held a gathering for the new chairs and directors. This was an informal gathering where we discussed our greatest challenges, biggest surprises, well-being strategies, and areas for future support. One of the best ways we can support our chairs is by developing a community, whether it be a contact person for specific questions or a group or people to converse with about challenges we all face; people appreciate the support of others as they transition to the new challenges posed by being a chair or director at DU.
