Problem: Board members arrive unprepared



Those selected for board service, or elected to the position, tend to be busy people. So, sometimes they struggle to review board materials sent ahead of time. Boards work best when all members arrive fully prepared. Expectations are key, so make sure board members know they are to prepare thoroughly for all board meetings. As much as possible, send all materials ahead of time by mail or email. The board as a group should decide how many days in advance that they prefer to receive this information. They should also specify what kind of reports they want and at what level of detail.
