United Way is pleased to partner with Priti Shah, of PRAXIS Conflict Consulting for a workshop that will contribute to your knowledge and understanding of effective board meetings.

Workshop Overview

Board meetings are a legal and critical part of governance. They can be productive as well as gratifying for board members if there is clear purpose and structure, effective chairing, understanding of participant roles and effective management of dialogue and procedure.

Participants will gain knowledge in the following areas and have enhanced capacities to:

  • Prepare for meetings;
  • Structure the meeting agenda;
  • Create an effective meeting package;
  • Chair a meeting;
  • Understand the role of meeting participants;
  • Manage voting;
  • Handle confidential matters;
  • Understand Robert’s Rules of Order; and
  • Devise strategies for implementing meeting rules of procedures.
