Boardroom Series 2020 | The Art of the Board Meeting (Webinar)

Begins 08/13/2020
Available capacity: 24

The State Library's Boardroom series continues with the second installment: The Art of the Board Meeting. This year, the the Boardroom webinars bring in concepts from a variety of books, as we connect the books’ ideas to the business of library boards.

The Art of the Board Meeting looks at proven approaches for conducting better meetings by streamlining procedures and paperwork. Iowa Open Meetings law come into play, along with ideas for “going green” by flipping paper documents to electronic documents. From revamping agendas, to taking minutes, to ensuring that all voices are heard, come away with suggestions for more effective meetings.

The August program is based on the book The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters by Priya Parker. The author believes that the gatherings in people’s lives are largely lackluster and unproductive—which they don't have to be. Drawing on her expertise as a facilitator, Parker writes about a wide array of gatherings, from conferences and business meetings to backyard barbeques. She shows what works, what doesn't, and why.

There is no obligation to read the book prior to the program. Attendance: at this webinar helps satisfy Standard #8 "...all members of the library board of trustees participate in a variety of board development training each year..."
