Bored Meeting

Last night I held my second Board meeting as the president of my twins group. And it’s the second time that it’s gone on forever. I can’t seem to keep these meetings under 2.5 hours!! Granted, last night’s was at a restaurant and we all ordered dinner, so it was conducted around that. And we all like to chat. A lot. 😉

I try to keep things on track, but I also like that people enjoy chatting a bit. And I did ask at the beginning of the meeting which was more important: sticking to an hour or an hour and a half or getting through all the items on our agenda…which I never really got an answer to. A few mentioned that they may have to leave at such-and-such a time, but didn’t really say one way or the other if they minded if the meeting was finished by then.

Do I mind if people have to leave before the meeting is done? Nope. These people are MOMS!! As long as we get the information from them that we need before they jet…no worries.

Do I worry that the ladies are bored to tears because it’s going on so long? Absolutely…but the chatting still happens, and people seem to be animated and contribute to the discussions…so I suppose I won’t worry too much. Especially since a few always stick around after the official meeting is done anyway 😉

I just really hope I can keep these board meetings from becoming bored meetings.
