The Board Meeting Process

A board meeting can be an important event for the company, so it should be efficient and productive. Setting a clear agenda and focusing the discussion focused on the relevant issues will increase the value of each minute of the board meeting. Focusing the discussion can keep away distractions such as rambling or non-productive side conversations.

The first step in a typical board meeting is to make sure that a quorum of board members are present at the meeting. The presiding officer or designated board member is responsible for attendance and checks the list of attendees. This allows for any changes to the quorum as well as an accurate record of who was present at the meeting.

The board is then presented with a variety of reports. These include committee reports as well as executive reports and financial updates. In this stage the board reads the reports and debates them to make informed decisions about the future of the company. The reports are usually examined and approved by email or telephone by the directors before the meeting. This will speed up the meeting by ensuring that all members are familiarized with the content.

After the review of all reports, it is time to consider strategies that will help the business grow and meet its goals. These strategies should be coupled with key performance indicators (KPIs) to assess their effectiveness. These KPIs must be quantifiable, aligned with the goal of the organization, applicable and feasible.
