The Department of Labor proposed new rules on March 7 to boost the salary threshold at which American workers are eligible for overtime pay.

Are board meetings depleting association resources and staff time? The culprit may be meeting frequency. Most boards convene quarterly. A few govern only three times a year. Others gather as frequently as monthly.
The most common reason given for meeting often is, “We’ve always done it this way.”
Other rationales: “We like each other and the meeting facilitates the board’s networking.” And, “If we don’t meet monthly the directors will forget what we are working on.”
