Governance & Board Engagement

Board Meeting Agenda & Committee Reports

NCJW Sections have begun to move to a consent agenda model for their board meetings and have found success using this meeting format as it streamlines the board meeting and creates a more effective use of time.

Here is a sample consent agenda from St. Louis Section. 

Check out three sample templates for the Committee and/or VP reports submitted in order to prepare the consent agenda:
