Question: Difference between Board meetings and General meetings
We have our general meetings down, but I am having trouble convincing the new board that we need to continue to have separate Executive Board meetings. What is usually on the agenda for Executive Board Meetings?

No question, you don't want to have too many meetings, but the board should meet to address issues and concerns that do not need to be -- or shouldn't be -- discussed at the general meeting. Figure out a schedule that fits for everyone and recommend that these new board members keep an open mind.
Sometimes, board members should meet to discuss the merits of certain programs, how to address certain conflicts with group members, and if there's a need to make a quick decision, say about spending a small amount of money on an unexpected request/event.
