Use of Board Meetings

By Edward H. Kavinoky

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1948

This piece discusses the role and uses of board meetings in an agency setting. Does the effort spent to bring about board meeting justify its use? The meetings should not be used merely to rubber stamp the executive--to ratify what he or she has done and or to glow over meaningless statistics. The meetings must have affirmative values. Primarily their function is to help the executive do the agency's job. A good board deserves, gets and keeps a good executive; and a good executive helps make and keep their board informed, effective and alive.
