The Luxe Association is driven by our missions and largely measured by our success in achieving mission-related goals. Good governance provides the vision and direction to ensure that this association is on the right path. The responsibility for governing an association typically rests with a volunteer board of directors, operating according to a set of bylaws and working in close collaboration with the organization’s chief staff executive to set strategic direction, provide necessary resources, and make key decisions that association staff then implement to meet member needs. Volunteer leadership is often distributed among committees, sections, task forces, and other groups, making volunteer management an important operational function for association staff. In many associations, governance also involves the management of regional or local chapters or other components that support the national organization in fulfilling its mission. The Luxe Association is building towards the self-governing of an industry. This will happen when an industry can see industry benefits, personally experienced by the members of an association, built by an industry.
