Board Meetings and Retreats
The Alliance has compiled this set of board meeting and retreat-related resources from throughout the nonprofit and museum sector.
BoardSource shares common answers to questions posed by nonprofit leaders on the topic of board meetings. Covering everything from how to approach the very first board meeting of a nonprofit to how long meetings should last and whether or not the museum or nonprofit should use Robert’s Rules of Order, this resource is a good introduction to conducting effective board meetings.
The Free Management Library has a section on managing meetings. It includes links to resources on planning, leading, and evaluating the meeting.
Community Tool Box offers guidance on organizing and planning a retreat.
