How to Run a Successful Board Meeting Online


By gptampafl

Board Meeting Online is a method of meeting online for a business or organization’s board of directors. They are the ones who are responsible for governing and setting policies that help realize the goals and vision of a nonprofit or corporation. Their decisions are critical and have a direct impact on the entire organization. It is for this reason that being able to meet virtually is so important for them.

There are a few obstacles you must be aware when conducting an effective online board meeting. One of the biggest is that virtual meetings may be less enjoyable than in-person meetings. This is due to several reasons, including the absence of face-to-face interaction and a lack of ability to detect non-verbal signals, and it is difficult to maintain the momentum of the meeting. However, there are ways to overcome these issues and set up an online meeting for your board that is just as effective as an in-person meeting.

A good place to start is with the preparation. Make sure that all attendees have access to the required materials (the agenda Board Report as well as any other pertinent documents) prior to the meeting best at least 4-7 days prior to the meeting. This will allow them to read the documents prior to the meeting, and prepare any questions or comments they might have. It is also essential to keep the meeting agenda brief, since fatigue can be a factor during long virtual meetings. Breaks can be planned into the meeting to allow participants can take a break, drink coffee and get back on track.
