The board secretary’s role goes far beyond being the “note-taker” at board meetings. The job often entails being the chief organizer, ensuring compliance requirements are met, understanding governance issues, planning meetings, developing reports, and preserving corporate records.
This session will provide the information and tools needed to be a successful board secretary. It will review responsibilities and provide best practices to enhance administration of corporate governance, including establishing an agenda, delivering the board package, scribing contemporaneous meeting notes, and documenting the details in the official minutes. We will also review best practices for documenting “healthy debate” and discussion that may occur during a board meeting. We will provide guidance and tips for becoming more effective and efficient and provide tools to facilitate success.
Who Should Attend
