However, board members may discuss certain issues in private. The Board of Directors may attend the Board meeting and ask the boarding guests to attend during this part of the discussion. The reasons for joining management may be the need to discuss staff discipline, an employment contract or performance or compensation issues. Board members, individuals or non-profit organizations may suffer consequences if a board member or employee violates confidentiality, whether it happened without knowing it or not. The direct consequences may vary depending on the circumstances of the offence. The first step in drafting a privacy directive is to determine why the House needs it. The next section should indicate who the directive applies to, to which board members, staff members, non-board members, the advisory board and others may belong. Board members generally have a large network of voters, network members or others to whom they have shown some loyalty. While this is a good thing, the fact that a member of the Board of Directors shares the information he or she has obtained in the course of their employment or position or when board members rework issues outside of the board`s meeting time is often a source of conflict of interest. The Board of Directors must be sure that the board members fully understand that, as soon as the board approves a decision, it will be a decision of the entire board. All members of the Board of Directors must comply. If board members do not agree with a confidentiality decision, they can register their disagreement.
