Bylaws Come First
Before you nominate a single person to your company's board of directors, you must determine your board's institutional structure and document that structure in a set of written bylaws. Bylaws should answer questions such as:
How many members will your board have? Try to determine the best size, or number of board members, to help your company achieve its mission. Count in terms of the roles you need board members to fill.
How and when will board members be elected? How long should they serve? Board members usually serve two to four years. Terms generally expire on a staggered basis so that new members are not all elected at the same time.
What officers and committee structure will form the backbone of your board? Standing and sometimes temporary committees are charged with keeping certain subjects under review, focusing the board on those things that need board attention, and making constructive recommendations for board decisions. One of the first committees to establish is the nominating committee, which selects candidates for board vacancies. The nominating committee should be a permanent, ongoing committee, with its responsibilities clearly spelled out in the bylaws or in a board resolution. Other standing committees may include finance or budget, audit, personnel policy, executive evaluation, and a building or facilities committee.
How often will your bylaws be reviewed and updated?
How will your board assess its own performance?
