The First 90 Days

The First 90 Days

So you’ve got a new board role. Now what? Once you get your first board appointment, the next step is to get some pointers on how to ensure you get off to a good start in the new role. Some organisations will run a structured induction process. In others, you may need to be more proactive in getting what you need to work effectively as a non-executive. 

To make sure your first 90 days in your new board role are a success, in this article we share tips from WOB UK members on what to do first, from practicalities to starting to get a feel for the board dynamics, including:

  • Get a list of board and committee meeting dates for the next 1-2 years to minimise diary clashes
  • Get a copy of the prior year’s audit report
  • Meet the chair and/or co/vice chair - ideally not together!
  • Sit in your first board meeting as soon as possible
  • Get to know the PA to the Chair or CEO
