ASK AASB: What happens when the public wants to engage in conversation during a meeting?

It is really best practice NOT to engage. This article outlines some of the reasons why.
Some additional thoughts:

  • It can be difficult to give adequate answers on the fly.
  • No single board member can speak for the board as a whole.
  • Different perspectives by different board members can lead to confusion for the public.
  • Engaging gives the audience the wrong perception, They are NOT in charge, the board is.
