Executive Director David Cook (Hendersonville, N.C.) and his board use the following format for their board meetings. Cook said that board meetings begin at 3:30 p.m. and seldom go past 5:00 p.m.
Editor’s note: One item I would suggest adding to a board meeting agenda is time for board members to engage in strategic thinking about the challenges facing the organization, possible opportunities and board member updates on interactions with stakeholders and the community. By building this into each meeting agenda, the board gets to work on the organization’s strategic needs and substantive challenges. By doing this, the executive director is also subtly training them to work on matters that fall under the board’s role and responsibilities.
