Keys to Success & Where to Start
A consent agenda is a collection of items that are voted on as a package at the board meeting, without discussion. These items are distributed for reading in advance, while the board meeting is used for discussion of pertinent, strategic issues. The goal of a consent agenda is to avoid using board meetings as a forum to disseminate information, and to use board meetings for discussion and decision-making.
