A non-profit meeting agenda is a roadmap to help guide a non-profit’s board or staff meeting. The agenda includes details regarding fundraising, finance, programming, nominations, and other relevant business. It is crucial to maintaining structure and order to the meeting and the secretary uses it to outline the meeting minutes.
