A common question heard from Board members is how they can have shorter Board meetings.
The first step to shorter meetings is actually in the hands of the Board members themselves – the Board packet. As the management team, we understand that Board members are volunteers and lead busy lives. But reviewing the Board packet as much as possible prior to attendance at the meeting (instead of opening the Board packet mailing envelope at the meeting), can significantly speed up the time spent at the meeting. As the items of business on the agenda are addressed, action can be taken quicker due to all Board members being familiar with the action required on each item – and thus, a shorter meeting!
