Can you speak at Board Meetings?
Yes! Everyone has the right to speak at public Board Meetings – it is the democratic process in action. When you enter the Board Room, fill out the yellow slip on the conference table and hand it to the office manager.
- When your name is called, approach the podium. Once you start speaking, you have a 3-minute limit.
