In this Q&A session, governance expert Cathy Trower will provide guidance on planning for and building great board meeting agendas to ensure appropriate oversight and engage trustees strategically and generatively. The perennial topic of board meeting agendas requires us to get into specifics—what might seem “weedy,” but so necessary—around such questions as:
Who should provide input on board meeting agendas and what is the ideal timeline for planning?
What are the guidelines for deciding on agenda topics? How should time be divided between important current issues facing the school, cyclical topics like budget and head evaluations, and longer-term strategic issues?
How do you fit in time for board professional development and education?
How might agendas vary between day school and boarding school meeting schedules?
We hope you will join us in this deep dive conversation on these questions and come with your own agenda questions for Cathy!
Presented by Cathy Trower, President, Trower & Trower
