Boards help sheets part 9 - Board business

Towards more effective meetings

If the board can be considered the mind of a community group, the meetings are the heart. This is where all major decisions are made and the board comes together as a group to steer the organisation towards its mission.

  • What are the characteristics of a really effective meeting?
  • How should our board meetings be run?
  • How can we fix their failures?

These help sheets will help you answer these questions and ensure your meetings become more harmonious, productive and effective.

We will be adding new help sheets regularly so keep coming back to check out the latest tools and resources to help strengthen your board and yourself as a board member.
