Simple suggestions for a quality board meeting

  1. Compile all materials in one pdf file (easy for board members to print out in one step and easy for you to control content)
  2. Send materials at least 24 hours in advance
  3. Assume board members have read the materials
  4. Have board meeting center around strategic issues facing the company -- ie. what 3 questions do you want input on? 
  5. Overall, make the board meeting conversation in style and not reporting in style.
