The structure of your board is what lets it make sound decisions. The meeting of the board usually begins with a call-to-order, in which the chairperson greets all participants, introduces new members and outlines the purpose and vision of the business. The next step in a board meeting is to review and approve previous meeting minutes. This gives the board a snapshot of where the organization is at.

After the board has reviewed past performance, it’s now time to think about strategies to increase awareness of the nonprofit, increase donor and member numbers, and provide opportunities for fundraising. Ideas can be translated into concrete steps by each department. Senior management should be able to share their ideas for growth during this portion of the meeting, and also solicit input from the rest of the executive team. The board must then agree on a plan of action that can be implemented within the agreed timeframe.

It is also an opportunity to address any obstacles that may hinder the implementation of the plan, such as budgetary issues or time limitations. The board needs to find solutions that will aid the business in overcoming these obstacles and move forward.

The board meeting typically includes special announcements, celebrations, or condolences from the attendees, as well as essential additions to the agenda for the next session. The chairperson of the board will announce the meeting over in order for the secretary to keep the minutes.
