Description of the Template and Guide

Boards have many responsibilities and must abide by certain rules and formalities, but there is no one set way to run a board meeting. For every board meeting, the directors must still determine what topics to prioritize, how to manage the available time, and how to ensure the board members arrive informed and stay actively engaged throughout the call.

This meeting agenda template provides a simple starting place for setting up a board meeting. In the absence of other urgent matters, we recommend alternating the focus between strategic and operational issues at each subsequent meeting.
