Hate board meeting prep? Then automate the process

board meeting preparation

Preparing for a board meeting takes time. Lots of time.

Each item that appears on an agenda, from a rule change to a disciplinary case, requires supporting information. The people involved must be notified. And your board must receive a complete packet far enough in advance to allow for thorough review.

The work isn’t finished when the meeting concludes.  Decisions that occur during a board meeting can require updates to hundreds of records. New licenses will have been approved. Existing licenses will have been suspended or revoked. Fines will have been assessed.

No one wants to do all of this preparation and follow-up manually. With GL Suite, they don’t have to. The configurable application helps regulatory specialists work more efficiently through comprehensive automation. GL Suite streamlines license applications and renewals; tracks and audits continuing education hours; and manages investigations, inspections and enforcement. 

The system can schedule board meetings automatically. Staff can run reports showing upcoming board meetings as well as the records to be reviewed during each. GL Suite can automate the compilation of all related information and the creation of meeting packets. The information can be shared electronically and securely with board members for review. After the meeting concludes, the system helps agencies update affected records quickly and easily.

By reducing the time needed to prepare for board meetings, GL Suite allows staff to use their time more efficiently. Meanwhile, the creation and distribution of electronic board agendas eliminates spending on paper and postage.

GL Suite also supports graphical Business Intelligence reporting. BI reports allow agencies to present data to their boards in a compelling and easily understood format. GL Solutions’ clients use these tools to visualize a wide array of measures, including licensing and renewal trends, and even the number and location of available residential treatment beds. Because BI reports are interactive, users can filter data to illustrate areas of concern.
