Tools for More Effective Board Meetings – Free Expert Webinar

Lori Halley 22 December 2014 2 comments

We hear from many volunteers and staff at small membership organizations that they are having difficulty “dealing with their board”. They need to “get things done” but board inefficiency is getting in the way.

That’s why the next session in our Expert Webinar series is all about helping you conduct efficient, effective board meetings.

Tools For More Effective Board Meetings


Due to presenter illness, this session has been postponed and is now scheduled for:

New Date: Thursday,  February 5, 2015
Time: 2:00 PM (EST)

Presented by: Rick Lent, author of Meeting for Results Tool Kit: Make Your Meetings Work.

This Webinar has taken place. View the entire 1 hour video recording here.

What you’ll learn

This webinar will give you tools for improving your meetings so that you can:

  • Conduct more efficient and effective board meetings
  • Create meetings that build broader commitment to decisions
  • Achieve broader engagement and follow-up

Our webinar presenter for this session, Richard Lent (Meetings For Results), has 25 years of experience facilitating meetings around the world – meetings that have brought stakeholders together for planning, organizational change and societal issues. Rick also helps non-profit boards redefine vision and strategy to improve their work together.

As Rick suggests, "while each board situation is unique, there are common challenges facing the conduct of effective nonprofit board meetings. These challenges include board size (typically 10, 12 or more), use of time, decision-making, and ability to keep members engaged and committed to the work." In this webinar, Rick will share a number of tools that can help boards have more effective meetings. These tools help you structure the meeting and do not require special training or facilitation skills. You can use them to improve your very next board meeting.
