Every meeting must use an agenda style. Examples of agenda styles are "Regular Meeting", "Special Meeting", "Work Session", and similar meeting formats. It is a good practice to have a different agenda style for each kind of meeting your board conducts.
The agenda style specifies the the format of the agenda, the agenda content, and similar settings. For example, your Regular Meeting agenda style may include a Public Hearing region and you may have a Special Meeting agenda style which does not include the Public Hearings region. Additionally, you may use capital letters for your item numbering in your Regular Meetings and use decimal numbers in your Work Sessions. The design of each agenda style is independent of each other, so you can make as many differences as you want. You determine the names and design of your agenda styles.
Agenda styles belong to boards. That is, you can have a Regular Meeting agenda style for your City Council and a completely different Regular Meeting agenda style for your Planning Commission.
Selecting Agenda Styles
When a meeting is created, you need to choose the agenda style that you want to use for the meeting. All available styles are listed for you to choose one.
Agenda Styles and Item Types
You can also specify which item types can be used for an agenda style. For example, if you have an item type specifically for capital purchases items, and you do not want that kind of item to be included in any work session meetings, then you could choose to not associate the Capital Purchase item type with the Work Session agenda style.
