Preparing For Your Board Meeting

managing a Board of directors can be a long-winded and complex task that requires a lot. Many of the manual processes that were once necessary to send materials for the board, recording the attendees making minutes, and scheduling teleconferencing, are now digitized. This makes it simpler to prepare for meetings.

The process of preparing for a board meeting starts with a thorough review of the issues to be discussed. Prepare a draft agenda. The agenda should be sent to all attendees, and should contain the financials of your company and any presentation material that needs to be reviewed prior to the meeting. This will allow your board members to be better prepared for discussions at the meeting, and eliminates the necessity of spending the majority of your board meeting arguing about details that could have been discussed prior to the meeting.

The pre-meeting package should also include any reports prepared by committee chairs or other members of the board in advance. You should also make any changes, additions, or corrections to the previous board meeting’s minutes and then distribute them for review and distribution. Not least, note down a draft version of your current meeting’s minute while it’s still fresh in your mind.

The day before the board meeting, you should remove any notices for public meetings and make sure to check with the venue for the meeting to ensure that it will be available and accessible. It should also have any AV equipment that you may require. Be sure to invite all directors to the meeting, and to provide them with an opportunity to attend whether in person or via remote.
