    The agenda is usually posted about the day before the meeting.  And if it is a teleconference they usually aren’t posted at all.  And if they are the membership doesn’t know the pass word so you can’t join or even listen.

    Never posted till just before the meeting, in fact the only way you know when the next meeting is ifyou remember the date from reading the minutes. And unless in executive session, the membership SHOULD be able to LISTEN in on any teleconference.

    At the very least a quick recap on this site from meeting would be great (Don use to do on occasion) until the minutes get posted.

    The agenda should be posted in draft for a minimum of  2 weeks before the meeting. Up dates (revised version) should be updated as needed until 2 days before the meeting. The final version should be set according to WI State Law and posted.  The agenda topic (ideas) and comments should in a new posting for each meeting telephonic or in person meetings.

    Not sure there are many if any laws covering member owned gun club meeting agendas.  I believe the laws you are referring to cover government like towns and such meetings.

    Don I do believe you are right. For private organizations I believe it is covered in the by-laws of said organization as to agendas.

    Thanks for the suggestion Ken.  I could not agree more.  In addition to my WTA Board seat, in my past I have sat on the board of a $2 billion organization consisting of three companies and in excess of 6,000 employees.  Board meetings were held monthly and NEVER went longer than 3 hours.  More often than not, the meeting would be over in 90 minutes.  This was accomplished by  those that were on the agenda having their materials prepared in advance and sent out to the board members a couple of days prior to the meeting.  It was each board member’s responsibility to read the material and be prepared to discuss and vote on the issue.  In addition, the president of the board was great about stopping idle or unproductive discussion and keeping the board on task.

    One of the ways I feel we as the board can better serve our members is by keeping our meetings to a reasonable period of time.  Currently, my first meeting with the WTA board pushed 8 hours or longer.  I was told that this is typical.  I think we can do much better than this.  However it’s every board members responsibility to be prepared and share the appropriate information prior to the meeting.  If we keep our meetings to 3 hours or less, I am sure we would have much better attendance from our members and a more focused and productive meeting.

    Just my thoughts on the matter.

    Wow that was well said. Loud and clear. I have never been on a board that takes so long. We need committees and everything could be done before meetings. I never ran a meeting that went this long. So I say Amen to you preaching Phil

    Yes  I totally agree , as I was a union president for many years and we would run our meetings under Roberts rules ,And with a little early agenda the directors can look them over and have a game plan ready for the meeting.     And as the chair I would try to keep all discussions to a minimum and if it got to long would put a time limit on it ,As all the directors and people who will come to these meetings  all have a life away from this and there time to them is very important as well .We should all take that into consideration for these Great people. It is  something that can be taken care of rather easy if you just try it  .Time is Money to everyone .

    Thanks for listening to my 2 cents ..

    I would like to see the format of the agenda changed. How can we move forward with pending or new business  when the treasurer report is last, prior to around the table. Most organizations I have been affiliated  with had secetary report 1st, treasurer report 2nd.
