Designing Effective Board Meetings: Purpose, Outcomes, Process, and People

Board meetings serve as a touchpoint for engaged family members and decision makers to come together in service of a collective giving effort—to make choices about strategy, direct funding, and receive updates on the philanthropy. Board meetings can also provide a space for learning and education. Join us for a discussion on how to intentionally design meetings to engage family members in a learning agenda about their giving and how to plan and facilitate enjoyable, useful meetings that consider the purpose, outcomes, process, and people involved.
