Managing a board meeting starts long before the board meeting itself. For a board administrator, a board portal saves time and energy because it electronically files all important documents. A board portal stores bylaws, meeting minutes, compliance documents, audits, directors’ and officers’ questionnaires, and more.

For the chairman of the board, they need to be decisive and authoritative in tone and body language, keeping the meeting in control. A skilled board chair sums up the ideas of board directors as they voice their ideas and concerns to support the director and clarify their perspectives.
