Preparing For Your Board Meeting

The preparation for your board meeting isn’t an easy task particularly if it’s the first time you’ve attended a board meeting or if you’re new to the board. Being prepared for your board meeting will help ensure that you get important insights and guidance from experienced leaders and strategic counsel. The first step is making sure that everyone on the board is aware of the agenda and have read the pertinent information.

The next step is to identify the meeting’s goals and objectives, which will influence your board’s discussion and decision-making. It’s also a good idea to go through the minutes of your last meeting, as it will reveal the changes you made, and provide insight on what needs to be discussed during the meeting.

The last thing to do is take your time selecting the agenda items. Your board will be able move through the meeting more efficiently if they prioritize the most important issues first. This will also help avoid the meeting becoming stuck on the lesser important items. Additionally, make sure each agenda item is clearly presented as an opportunity to provide information or get more information and not simply to decide.

Send your board agenda early enough so that everyone has plenty of time to read it and review it. This is especially important for virtual or physical meetings that require participation by a quorum. Make sure to check in with the members of the executive team that are responsible for reporting and make sure they have the necessary materials.
