Board Meeting Procedures

Board meeting procedures are the guidelines for decision-making discussion, decision-making, and other aspects of the meeting. They ensure fairness and equity for all participants and help facilitate meetings.

The chair of the meeting will call the meeting to order and decide whether there is a quorum. They also introduce any guests attending the meeting, regardless of whether they are not part of the company or have just joined the board. Then, they conduct review of the minutes from the previous meeting, and an opportunity to make any corrections made prior to the minutes being officially accepted.

During this time, updates and reports from members or committees are shared. These can be in the form of graphs, charts or slides that illustrate the data and add context to the discussion. This section should be kept as brief as possible and should focus on the most important details.

The majority of the board meeting is dedicated to back-andforth discussions and questions. This is a great opportunity to gain insight from other board members' perspectives and to explore different strategies. It is also recommended to discuss any major landmarks or areas for improvement that have been identified since the last meeting.

It is essential to inform the participants of the manner in which decisions will be taken during the meeting. In the ideal scenario, this will be done through consensus but should always have a voting procedure. Whatever method of decision-making is used it is crucial that everyone knows how it works and is familiar with the rules that govern the hierarchy of different types of motions.
