From the Board Advisor Mailbag

Every week, we get questions from Board Leaders across the U.S. and around the world. We can’t answer them all, but we do our best! Our favorite questions are featured (anonymously, of course!) in the short Board Advisor Mailbag videos on our website.

If you’ve got a board-related question, just email Bev here. If your question is featured, we’ll send you an eCopy of our Board-Building Toolkit.

We look forward to hearing from you!
