Under the main categories, list the subcategories. Under Call to Order, you might include Roll Call, Introductions, Approval of Previous Meeting Minutes, President Report and Treasurer Report. Under Purpose of Meeting, leave enough blank space for meeting organizers to include that information. Under Presentations, start with Old Business and then leave enough room for a meeting organizer to list the days new topics of discussion. If you hold meetings by committee or department, start with New Business and list each department or committee name. After the final committee or department heading, list Old Business, where you review unfinished tasks from the last meeting. Under the Meeting Close, list Action Items, Next Meeting Date and Adjournment.
According to a study conducted by Verizon Business, meetings are the #1 time waster in the workplace. They are often unorganized, have no purpose and go off-topic. Its also no mistake that most of these meetings are missing a clear meeting agenda. Meeting objectives give adults a reason to meet. If there is no clear objective, there is no point in the meeting. This objective should outline exactly why you are holding a meeting and what you hope to accomplish as a result. Follow a process, whether its sent through email or printed and distributed, make sure everyone on your team knows what to expect. Sending it in advanced ensures that attendees have ample time to prepare or read through any notes they will need before the meeting and raises flags if the objective does not match their expectations.
Leave space for details on the template, such as presenters names, the time of each presentation and breaks. Your agenda should allow the meeting organizer to create a timetable that keeps the meeting on track. For example, the agenda might start with Call to Order and roll call, 9:00, followed by Introductions, 9:05, all the way through to the finish of the meeting. This informs attendees how much time they have to make their presentations, when they are able to break for calls or emails and when the meeting adjourns.
