That just doesn't make much sense.
I agree that the board should not have to be involved in reserving meeting rooms and mundane tasks like that, but they should have input on the time and day a meeting is scheduled with input on their individual availability; especially when it is a time drastically different from the usual meeting time. When you are supposed to be a part of a meeting is it just scheduled for you or are you consulted as to your availability if your attendance is required?
