The paperless working environment has arrived and as technology becomes easier to use and more accessible many governing bodies are beginning to recognize the benefits of ‘paperless governance’.
Paperless governance sounds simple – preparing for and conducting board and committee meetings without printing one single piece of paper. This can now be easily achieved.
Most governing boards and committee structures currently print out and circulate their agendas, minutes, meeting notes and reports or board members have to do this themselves. There are often significant costs that can add up including staff time, postage, paper and print costs. In addition, it is also important to recognise the implications for storage and the environment.
In a world of increasing scrutiny, accountability and challenge it is essential that governing bodies can perform as effectively and efficiently as possible. Going paperless can save time, money and improve the accessibility and accuracy of information and data to help board members make the right decisions.
