A board meeting is a formal gathering of a Board of Directors. Most of the organizations, being public or private, profit or non-profit, are ultimately governed by a body commonly known as Board of Directors. The members of this body cyclically meet to discuss strategic matters like the Appointment of Director.

A Company has to convene a Board Meeting and pass the necessary resolution for appointing a Director in addition to the Directors already appointed by the Company. The resolution must be passed unanimously.

Thus, review your Board Meeting Minutes immediately after the meeting. When your board meeting minutes are complete and finished, make sure they are distributed to board members as soon as possible. Once the minutes are approved by a vote of the members during the board meeting, they become part of the official record of the organization. It’s important that a copy of all minutes are kept in one place.
