How to Run an Association Meeting?

In order to conduct a successful and productive association meeting, it is important to focus on proper planning. Thorough preparation is useful to run the meetings smoothly in a professional manner without causing any incidents. 

It is also important to set a professional tone for the association meeting to ensure board members are performing their duties and important decisions can be taken on future projects. 

The following are 5 tips that are useful in running an association meeting smoothly:

Advance Announcement

Announce the meeting date and schedule in advance to ensure all of the stakeholders and participants can get ready. Don’t only rely on word of mouth. Instead, send emails or announce the meeting schedule in a newsletter. Ask for RSVP’s as well.

Distribute Information Before the Meeting

Every director should have complete information about the meeting’s agenda at least one week before the association meeting. Make sure that board members and directors have ample time to review the relevant material to make smart decisions at the meeting. 

Be Consistent

Try to be consistent in scheduling the meetings. If you choose the same time and place for every association meeting, it will make it much easier for the participants to arrive at them as they will be familiar with the venue. 

Prepare Meeting Agenda

Create a thorough meeting agenda and share it with all the relevant stakeholders of the meeting. An organized agenda is critical to holding an organized meeting. Otherwise, there can be a lot of chaos and confusion in an association meeting.  

Be Prepared

There is no concept of over-preparation when it comes to holding a successful association meeting. You should not get overwhelmed during this process, but always be ready to handle different surprises and controversies that can emerge during the meeting. 

Unpleasant surprises have the tendency to derail the entire agenda. You can avoid them by discussing the potential problems before the meeting and trying to present a resolution in advance to smoothly run the meeting instead of getting dragged into long debates and arguments. 

Moreover, always be prepared for some type of controversy to happen during an association meeting. A lot of people are involved in such meetings, and someone can bring up any controversial topic. 

You can avoid their disruptions by making sure the meeting is running according to the decided agenda. By following these five critical tips, you will be in a very good position to hold a successful and fruitful association meeting.
