Running Effective Meetings

Making sure that trustee meetings are run effectively is essential for the good governance of an organisation.

For straightforward information about how to make sure your trustee meetings and AGMs work well see the PAVO information sheets 2.3 Effective Meetings and 2.4 Effective Annual General Meetings.

The NCVO website has some simple and effective guidance about Meetings, minutes and agendas as well as Chairing a meeting.

The Charity Commission publication CC48 - Charities and Meetings gives comprehensive guidance for charities about good meetings practice and some of the legal issues involved.

The WCVA Trustee and Governance Website has a useful paper from the 2007 Wales Trustee & Governance Conference about making the structure of trustee meetings more effective Improving Meeting Agendas and Board Reports.
