POSTPONED: Running an Effective Meeting and the Board Chair’s Role

To protect our staff and stakeholders, CNE has closed its Charlottesville office to the public and postponed this training session. We’ll reach out to registered participants when we have a clearer idea of the timing. Refunds will be available to those unable to attend the newly scheduled time. See here for a full CNE message regarding COVID-19 and here for a list of curated resources.

Are you new to chairing board meetings? Or do you just feel that meetings could be more focused, more productive, and more fun? If so, then come and learn some key components of running an effective board meeting.

Effective board meetings require timely and efficient communication with board members, established norms regarding board behavior, and agendas moving the board strategically forward. Robust board meetings require board engagement and the board chair plays a significant role as facilitator, problem-solver, relationship-builder, just to name a few characteristics. Join Cindy Colson and fellow board members to share, learn, and provide peer support around running board meetings.

During the roundtable board members will:

  • Share current experiences
  • Learn additional procedures for productive discussion and decision-making
  • Meet other board leaders in the area for continued peer support

The format will include a 45-minute presentation followed by 45 minutes for peer-to-peer dialogue, learning, and problem-solving.
