What’s the best way to run your board meeting?

Don’t waste your board meetings on updates | A Founder’s Notebook

Don’t waste your board meetings on updates. We take an extreme approach to board meetings in Seeking Alpha — there are no updates. The updates are in the board letter and time series charts, which we send to the board and expect everyone to read before the meeting. The entire meeting is devoted to discussion, and lasts no longer than three hours.
