  1. Former Trustee

    My organization use the term Executive Session interchangeable. One is for the executives of the board to discuss topics for the BOD Meeting, a brainstorming session, getting input from the Executive Administrator etc. The second way it is used is to close the Open Session and go to Executive Session involving only the BOD discussing pending litigation, personnel issues etc. The by-laws only discusses the former. My idea that I'm tossing around is to leave the first, 'Executive Session' alone. I propose to name the second one involving the entire BOD 'Closed Session' to eliminate possible confusion and define it in the By-Laws. I have noticed in the threads that Executive Session and Closed Session are often used interchangably. Any input on my proposal?
