Why board size matters
from By Robert C. Harris
The board table was set for 30. At each director's place there was a board packet and name tent card. When the meeting convened, there were 12 empty seats. Nearly half of the directors did not show up. They addressed the problem by reducing the size of a quorum from 50 to 40 percent, or only 12 people. In a different scenario, an association rented a convention center for the board meeting. The directors numbered more than 200. The things that matter the most about board size are governance efficiency and producing desired results.
