2. In the Room Where It Happens: Why We Have Meetings
Although boards are comprised of several board members, they operate as a cohesive entity. They bring different points of view, experiences and cultures to help the congregation serve its mission in the world. This happens through the creative and wise discussions that happen in board meetings.
Good meetings have lively discussions about topics that make a difference. Everyone gets a chance to speak, and everyone listens deeply to what they have to say. Board members appreciate and enjoy one another as they discern what is best for the congregation, its mission and its vision.
