The Use of a Consent Agenda A consent agenda is a meeting practice which packages routine committee reports, Board meeting minutes, and other non-controversial items not requiring discussion or independent action as one agenda item. This can save precious meeting time by allowing the Board to approve this ‘package’ of items together in one motion. Reports and information can be grouped together under a consent agenda only if all Board of Directors agree. If only one Director selects a specific item for discussion, it must be removed and placed on the regular Board meeting agenda. Find out the types of items that can be found on the consent agenda, how a Board starts using one, and the process for using one in the document below.
