Innovative meeting agenda practices
from By William D. Pawlucy and Robert C. Harris
Most board agendas look similar. They begin with a call to order, approval of the minutes, review of finances and transition to reports. On average the officers, committees and staff offer 15 reports and updates. Listening to and reading reports is not governance. A board's purpose is to advance a mission, serve members and oversee assets. The passion and expertise of directors should be leveraged. A traditional agenda format may be wasting board time.
