How we run board meetings at Seeking Alpha | A Founder’s Notebook

No dial-ins because it kills the conversation. If someone can’t attend, call them the following week to update them. Don’t go through the board materials during the meeting we assume everyone read them in advance. No texting or emailing during the meeting so we provide a break for people to make calls or email. Never make decisions during the board meeting group dynamics are unpredictable and an unreliable decision making mechanism.
