Board of Directors meetings provide an opportunity for a business or nonprofit to discuss and discuss strategic decisions. The meetings are an important element of the management of an organization, since they establish the foundation for future success and productivity. By following a set of best practice you can ensure that your board’s agenda is organized and productive, leading to productive discussions that help support organizational growth.

A productive board meeting begins by clearly defining the goals of the gathering and ensuring that all the necessary legal considerations are considered. This includes provisions in the governance documents that define the limits on participation and attendance for members with conflicting interests or claims and conditions for participants who only have observer status.

Every board meeting should include a discussion of important business issues, such as the review and approval of financial statements and addressing major questions of policy. The agenda should include time for the board members to think about their current performance as well as ways they can improve.

Insufficient preparation and inefficient communications could result in a haphazard meeting with a sloppy agenda that isn’t addressing the most important business issues. A well-planned agenda and clear minutes will reduce the possibility of miscommunications and disagreements, and also ensure that all decisions are taken in a legally sound and informed manner. Additionally the board must avoid being distracted by discussion topics that are not on the agenda’s most urgent agenda by creating a “parking lot” for these items at the end of the agenda.
