If not, you should.
It doesn’t take long (three to six years, depending on your board terms) before you have a completely new board (not counting your executive committee).
- Chamber Bylaws;
- Board member job description;
- Board minutes from the past year;
- The chamber’s last annual report and audited financial statement;
- Strategic Plan;
- Dates of all upcoming board meetings and major events for the year;
- A current list of all board members and their terms; and
- A scorecard to measure board member involvement.
These are just a few suggestions. It’s important that you add what works best for your chamber. Setting the expectation up front concerning your board members involvement in the organization is just good business.
An informed board member will be an active board member.
