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 helps startup boards move quickly through the formalities so they can focus most of their discussion on solving problems.
