How do you maintain a motivated and efficient board?

  • Keep board members fully aware of the mission, vision and business model of the organisation.

  • Ensure board meetings are well-run.

  • Keep board members informed between board meetings.

  • Consider a communications protocol so board members are aware of how, when and whom to contact within the organisation (this prevents board members contacting staff members at random).

  • Write clear, informative papers which present options and indicate where the board is required to give advice or take decisions; send them out at least a week prior to a board meeting.

  • Invite board members to events, briefing them in advance on who is going to be there, and any advocacy points you wish them to make.
