One of the most challenging things about managing a Board of Directors is also one of the conceptually simplest. How to find a time for your board meeting that works for everyone on the board. Board members are always exceptionally busy people, and finding a time for a board meeting that works for all, or even most, of them can be very difficult.
There's no magic solution for this problem, but there are tools that can make it easier. Rather than sending out a proposed meeting time, best practice is to send out a list of meeting times, and then let each board member select the times that work for them. That way you get a list of times and you can see which ones work for everyone, if there are any, and which ones work for the most members. iBoardrooms incorporates a tool like this so that members can indicate workable meeting times and you can get the meeting scheduled and use your board's time for strategic thinking rather that scheduling logistics.
