What preparation is required?
The Chair and the Company Secretary should plan the number of board and committee meetings they need for the year. The number and timing of these should be based on the work to be carried out at board and committee level. Preparation should include a timed agenda based on the board workplan for the year, the distribution of the previous board minutes and the papers for the board meeting. The agenda should include the time and place where the meeting is being held and dial in details if required.
