Board meetings: Time to go virtual?
Abstract: Regularly scheduled board meetings are a must, but not every meeting has to be conducted in person. Periodic virtual board meetings — ranging from conference calls to videoconferencing — can offer significant benefits for both organizations and their board members. This article describes how virtual meetings can be attractive to busy board members, both current and potential. But it also discusses some of the challenges, and why virtual meetings may be more suitable for some agendas than others.
