Meetings follow the 4 principles and law of Open Space (nicely laid out here) – in short, it’s OK to arrive or leave according to your needs and we’re all responsible for our own engagement. Meetings last as long as the group feels is necessary. We’re beginning the year assuming meetings will be roughly 90 minutes long, but will track and report on duration to improve our estimation.
The Association of Sustainability Practitioners runs a board meeting every month, hosted by members of the board. Meetings are run on a flexible rota to maximise the chances that every associate will be able to attend at least some meetings if they choose (online attendance is available). Associates wishing to attend should register their intent by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a standing agenda for directors meetings in two parts:
1) monitoring and supporting organisational health
2) facilitating learning and action which move us in the direction of our mission
