Did you read my blog on BoardSource — focused on destroying executive committees? Tons of comments. Good back and forth.
Maybe you could print all this out and have your board members read it. And then…. Drum roll please…. Talk about it.
Because your board gets to decide if it wants an executive committee. Even if your bylaws say there is an executive committee, the board can initiate a change in the bylaws.
So check out the blog and all the back and forth. (Just scroll down!) I think all boards ought to have this conversation.
