Board Meetings and Orientation
According to the 2017 BoardSource Leading With Intent Survey
(registration required) results: "Board meeting time is a precious and limited resource, with most boards meeting for 2 hours or less each time they come together, and executives currently report that 38% of all meeting time is spent on routine reporting. The 2017 study found that — overall — board size has decreased slightly over the past 20 years, with the average board size currently at 15 individual members and the median board size at 13 (not including vacant seats)."
Based on data from ACCE's FY 2017 Operations Survey (via Dynamic Chamber Benchmarking
), Boards of Directors meet between 6 (25th percentile) and 12 (75th percentile) times per year, with the median (50th percentile) being 11 meetings. The board is best served with structured meeting agendas and formal onboarding of new board members.
