The annual board calendar is a schedule of all the functions and tasks the board and its committees must perform during the year. These are allocated to specific board and committee meetings. The board calendar is also sometimes known as the board work plan.
It is often the responsibility of the company secretary to compile the annual board calendar, obtain board approval for the calendar and then ensure that the various items are attended to as required by the plan.
