You have been tapped as your institution’s new board secretary. Congratulations! The first thing to know is that your role goes far beyond taking minutes at board meetings. You must be the chief organizer, ensure compliance requirements are met, and develop an understanding of governance issues. This important webinar will provide the information and tools needed to succeed in your new role. It will explain your responsibilities and best practices to enhance administration of corporate governance, including planning and establishing an agenda, delivering the board package, “scribing” notes during the meeting, and documenting the details in the official minutes. You’ll be provided with guidance, tips, and tools to create a more effective, efficient process to carry out your role.
