I appreciate this topic of board development, in particular with the promise of improving board work and support for the positive participation and development of each board member.
Our board meets once a month for two hours, which is not enough to only get the pressing tasks done, not to speak of tackling larger issues.
A question I would like to see addressed is: what are proven ways for a board to become sufficiently knowledgeable about the inner workings and idiosyncrasies of Waldorf schools that are different from the workings of bureaucracies and businesses? The time and effort for this learning activity needs to be in a healthy relationship to the time and effort necessary for a once a month volunteer work.
