Meetings and Governance Best Practices

Have you ever wished you knew how other Corporate Secretaries manage their board and committee meetings to make effective use of their time and provide all the support their directors’ demand?

This “essentials” workshop will provide you with key tools for managing meetings and minutes in a risk-driven corporate landscape.

Spend an interactive ½-day gaining insight on both the practical and legal requirements you need to be aware of when holding meetings, taking minutes, recording procedures, guiding directors, preparing resolutions and managing special circumstances such as conflicts of interest.

PLUS, we’ve added a working-lunch roundtable at the end of the session to allow for some great networking and discussion of current practices among the participants in a facilitated session. If you have any specific questions you would like to cover in the roundtable session, please email us at info@cscs.org

Explore :

• Examine the role of the Corporate Secretary before, during and after the meeting, including translating mandates into agendas, dealing with conflicts of interest and preparing annotated agendas
• Delve into the topic of minutes – what is their purpose, what to include, what to exclude, the three fundamentals of AAA+ Minutes™, the three styles of minutes, current and emerging issues and our Top 10 Tips for writing effective minutes
• Discover new ideas for managing your board meetings that will fit your organization to a tee and free up your time

EXTRA ADDED BONUS: All participants will receive a F R E E copy of the forthcoming book by Sylvia Groves, AAA+ Minutes™ - The three must-do fundamentals and 100s of practice tips for writing minutes that protect your organization and its directors. A $79.95 value.
