A Board Calendar is an essential tool in every boardroom. The board calendar is a schedule of meetings, events and other activities intended to help a board of directors plan and manage its activities. A Board Calendar assists with providing structure to the Board’s activities in a given year thereby ensuring that each meeting is focused, everything is covered in a sensible order, and ultimately that nothing critical is missed.
A committee is a group of individuals appointed or elected to perform a specific task or to make decisions collectively. It can refer to a group in a not-for-profit, business, government, or other organisations. The members of a committee typically work together to discuss, debate, and make decisions on issues within their area of responsibility. Committees in not-for-profit organisations, sometimes call sub-committees, typically report to the board of directors and provide recommendations and suggestions on specific topics.
A Circular resolution is a governance mechanism that provides a way for the board of directors of an organisation to make a decision or take a specific action (resolution) without requiring a board meeting to happen, instead allowing the decision to be made via a written document rather than an in-person vote. The Circular Resolution is an important tool to allow a board of directors to make decisions. The board would normally use one for uncontroversial and routine decisions that need to be passed and approved in between scheduled board meetings.
