A reminder email for board meetings is a good method to ensure that board members are informed and prepared before the meeting. The reminder email for meetings contains important details such as the title of the meeting, time, date and location, and any agenda items. It also serves as a pleasant reminder to attendees to take note of and organize their schedules. Sending regular reminders for meetings including initial notices as well as follow-ups as the date draws closer, increases accountability of participants and reinforces the importance of the scheduled engagement.

The most effective meeting emails begin with a polite welcome in which you express your gratitude and acknowledge the person’s commitment. The purpose of the meeting will then be clearly communicated, and may include collaboration, decision making in brainstorming or disseminating. It is essential to aligning participants and avoiding miscommunication or oversights. A concise and clear agenda helps recipients mentally prepare for the topics to be discussed. If the meeting will take location in a virtual venue the meeting agenda should include the virtual meeting link and any relevant access instructions to ensure seamless participation.

Also, the reminder of the meeting should include important details about the meeting in the subject line to make it easier for recipients to prioritize it in their inbox. This will help ensure that the message does not get lost in the shuffle, especially as most email recipients receive dozens messages per day. The subject line is particularly important because it is one of the first things that users see when they open the email.
