How to Conduct a Successful Remote Board Meeting
A remote board meeting enables directors to attend a meeting in a virtual setting, without having travel or make a commute. This enables board members to work from home or wherever else they have a good internet connection, which could reduce the cost and hassles that come with traditional commuting.
However, there are some important things to keep in mind when conducting remote meetings. It’s for instance, it’s important to develop an agenda and assign tasks in advance to ensure that every director knows what their responsibilities are during the meeting. Additionally, it’s essential to ensure that the participants are able to connect without any technical problems.
It’s also important to establish a procedure that defines when people are allowed to speak during the meeting. This can help avoid chaos by avoiding people talking over each other or going off on unrelated irrelevant tangents. Participants can be asked to raise their hands to indicate that they want to speak. You can use the “raise your hand” function on some online meeting platforms. In addition, you should try to plan meetings outside of normal times for eating to avoid having to eat on camera.
Final point: You should have a system for recording minutes of meetings and dispersing them to all board members after each meeting. This will help ensure that any important discussion or views are left unnoticed and that all directors have access to the information they need to make informed decisions for your company.
