How to Conduct a Successful Remote Board Meeting

A remote board meeting is a virtual version of the traditional face to face board meeting, where you and other participants connect through an online, secure, and easy-to-use platform. Your team can attend the meeting without the need to travel or spend money on travel expenses.

The first step in having a successful remote meeting is to select the most effective video conference software. It must be safe, accessible, and have a lot of useful tools. When you’ve chosen the right one, make sure you do a test run before the meeting to ensure that all participants are comfortable with the program and can begin quickly.

It’s recommended to review the specific rules and rules of your state regarding remote meetings. It is possible that you will need to consider legal limitations, so make sure to consult your board administrator or lawyer before scheduling the meeting.

Another aspect of etiquette during virtual meetings worth considering is turning off your microphone when you’re not speaking to allow other participants to be able to see the conversation clear. This can help keep the meeting on schedule by avoiding unnecessary interruptions, which can result in frustration for everyone involved.

Last tip: Prior to you start, set specific goals and time limits. This way, you’ll keep the meeting on track and hit every item in your agenda. This will help you keep board members on the phone and focused throughout the meeting.
