Question of the Week


We have invited our newly elected board members to attend the last board meeting of the year in June to sit in and observe. They want to come to all remaining board meetings so they can fully understand the process and ask all their questions. What is the normal procedure?

A best practice, and it would also help to ensure a great transition of officers, would be to have the newly elected members at the meetings prior to the last one, as well, but to set clear parameters. They are there to observe, but do not have a voice or vote in those meetings. (The outgoing board, could grant them a voice, but that is up to the board), and of course, they do not have a vote.
