Board Agenda with Consent Agenda - Charlevoix Area Chamber

Example of a Board Agenda that includes a Consent Agenda section, with committee reports, minutes and financials passed in the Consent Agenda section.  The Charlevoix Area Chamber of Commerce found that by moving these items to the end of their meetings (previously the first item), has allowed for the start of each meeting to be filled with the new business and continuing business items.  This keeps each meeting fresh, and allows for plenty of discussion time for those items as well as keeping the board focused on the future and working on items listed in our Strategic plan. Therefore, the time for Board meetings is more efficient and productive.
