How Governance Online Meetings Can Transform Your Board Experience


Online Governance Meetings

It’s impossible to overstate the importance of open, regular discussions, whether you’re running a non-profit organisation, a private business or a large corporation. Governance meetings help you address ambiguities, tensions and disagreements before they grow into conflict or anger. They also make sure that all participants are treated in a fair, meaningful way.

But when the COVID-19 lockdowns began and companies pushed employees–including executives–to work from homes it was a struggle to maintain normal business. Directors had to deal with a myriad of new and urgent challenges. These included putting together emergency plans for the ongoing epidemic, implementing a face mask policies, ensuring employees’ safety and health, as well as creating emergency succession plans. They had to coordinate with numerous people working remotely.

Fortunately, digitization facilitates the ability to plan and conduct governance meetings. A Virtual meeting platform such as CivicPlus Mass Media allows you to create documents, send out invitations, keep track of attendance, and communicate information in a secure participant space online. Legal professionals who are in charge of arranging governance sessions to spend more time on tasks that will enhance the value of your business. The result is a better management system that allows for an efficient, collaborative and engaging board experience for all those involved. Furthermore, it can help meet the needs of the increasing number of stakeholders being asked to be involved remotely.
