Specimen cover sheet for charity board meetings

Good decision making is the cornerstone of a robust governance framework, and the quality of information presented to boards can prove essential as a catalyst for constructive challenge and discussion resulting in high quality decisions. Board packs should not be so detailed as to stray into operational matters, or so voluminous that trustees find it hard to tell what is important. Board information should be framed in a manner to support the decision making of the board, and not merely present management data with little or no supporting narrative, context or visual aids.
