First of all: kudos to Stephen for getting the agenda more or less consistently out before the meeting - that's already an improvement compared to the past.
Of course any advance time would be helpful - but only if the board would actually appreciate input. I believe the meeting schedule is regular enough that community members could already suggest topics (not sure if the chair or secretary would be the best point of entry for that), so there would only be an added benefit if also supporting documents would be shared in advance. I can imagine however that this would come at a very significant cost - it would affect probably a whole lot of deadlines and make it harder to make last minute updates.
