The creation of a well-organized agenda for board meetings is essential to a productive discussion. An effective agenda should include every important item that should be discussed at the meeting along with an estimated time for each item. This way, the board can stay on schedule and not exceed.

Your board meeting agenda must include all documents that are relevant to the discussion, including board reports and presentations. It is recommended to distribute these documents at least one week before the meeting date. This will allow everyone to review the material prior to the meeting and be prepared to discuss the topics on the agenda.

It’s important to clearly identify the next steps that follow the discussion of each item by the board. This ensures that there is clear information about who’s accountable for what and helps to make sure that all members have the same responsibilities.

It is not uncommon for meetings to diverge from the subject or to go over the time allocated to each topic. While it’s perfectly acceptable to do it occasionally, if it occurs frequently the board could be ignoring important topics or spending too much time on non-essential matters.

Be sure your agenda is organized and also includes space for special announcements, congratulations, recognition, and reminders. Don’t be afraid of being imaginative! You can add an element of color or include your organization’s branding. This will make your board’s agenda more appealing visually and easier for board members to navigate.
