HOWTO Bring A Proposal to the Board
The Board of Directors is happy to discuss any issue or concern that is appropriate for its consideration. In the interest of efficiency and equity, please consider the following guidelines:
- If you have a concern, consider getting together with a few other members to develop a proposal that remedies the situation. Having the discussion outside of formal meetings helps ensure that the various points of view are considered in the final proposal and makes it much more likely that your proposal would be adopted. It also saves precious time at meetings for other issues that may be just as important.
- Please send your proposal (before the board meeting!) to firstname.lastname@example.org so that The Board of Directors has time to consider your proposal.
- Please be considerate of the number of people x duration. E.g., if there are 20 people at a meeting, then every minute of the meeting is 20 minutes of peoples' time spent. Being prepared to explain your proposal in a concise and logical form makes it more likely that there will be time to discuss and act on it.
