Unlock efficient, transparent college board operations

As a community college leader, you're no stranger to the rapid changes and growing demands in the education sector. Your board plays a pivotal role in shaping the future of your institution and your community. But with shortened timelines and increasing expectations for transparency and community engagement, it's crucial to have the right tools at your disposal.

Why is efficient agenda and meeting management essential for community college boards? There are several reasons:

Transparency: Once the agenda is published online, there is greater awareness in the community and beyond. Additionally, community members can choose to be informed about upcoming board meetings. Your public website becomes the single source of truth, and livestreaming helps build trust and offers great accessibility.

As Dr. Chad Bledsoe, President of Montgomery Community College puts it, "We're required to publicly post all of our board meetings and packets and announce those meetings go out. We estimated that approximately ¼ of staff time or equivalent to one week out of a whole month was devoted to doing nothing but building board packets."

Community engagement: Well-managed meetings encourage community engagement. Stakeholders need to know when meetings are happening, what topics will be discussed, and how they can attend or provide input.

Efficiency: Efficient meetings help save time and resources, ensuring that important decisions are made in a timely manner.

Accountability: The public expects clear communication and transparency from their board members. Effective board management holds decision-makers accountable.
