Board

...Facilitate/Preside Over Meetings • Chairmen are required to "chair," or facilitate and preside over, company board meetings. More specifically, a chairman is expected to determine the agenda of the meeting at hand, encourage discussion and participation from all directors and board members and relay pertinent information regarding current events within or pertaining to the company. A chairman is also expected to point issue discussions and debates toward a consensus stance, upon which the majority of the board agree, and which can therefore be acted upon for the expected benefit of the company or organization. Organizing The Board • For productive meetings to take place, the board in question needs to consist of an effective balance of members in regards to the board members' ages, work experience and personalities. This organizational or compositional process is ongoing; as a person carries on in their role of chairman, they will find that board members will either leave of their own volition or will need to be replaced. Additionally, a chairman needs to involve directors already on the board to mentor new directors who are new to their position. • Spokesperson/Representative • Depending on the company or organization, the scope and frequency of public relations duties for a chairman may range from practically nonexistent to major responsibility. The spokesperson responsibilities of a chairman generally involve relaying the mission statement of the company or......

Parole Board

...what the parole board determines. Being eligible for parole is determined on numerous factors. One being good behavior while incarcerated, they are watched daily for their behavior. All issues that they may have in the prison are documented in their records and the parole board will be able to see if they have encountered any issues over their sentence. Another determining factor is a place to stay when they get out. This place of residence has to be suitable for them to be to live a productive life as a member of society. They do not encourage a man that gets incarcerated for drug issues to move to a residence that is known for drug trafficking or be a bad influence on his rehabilitation. They also have to have a means to support them when they get out. Access to a job when they get out helps to prove to the parole board that they are trying to enter the civilian world again as active members of society. Before an inmate has a chance for parole they need to make sure they are fit for parole. They need to pass a psychological exam. They need to make sure that they are fit to enter back into the civilian world. Once they have been proven fit to leave the prison they have to set up an interview with the parole board. This meeting will determine if they get parole or have to stay in prison. When they are incarcerated they are given a parole certificate or a contract depending on the facility. This is an agreement that the inmate makes with the parole board that they will......

...aware of the type of questions that board members may ask and to put the material in a "user friendly" format for study. The questions in any study guide should not be considered to be the only questions a board will ask. Some units provide a basic study guide for their soldiers. Study guides can also be purchased at the PX. One excellent study resource is the U.S Army Board Study Guide (www.armystudyguide.com). This is a free and very comprehensive online study guide. Seek counsel; other soldiers in your unit who have previously been to "the board" can provide you with a wealth of valuable information. They will be able to tell you about the process, the types of questions asked and their views on what the board members are looking for. Additionally, they can participate in a mock board to help you prepare yourself (see mock boards). Knowing what to expect can help to ease your nerves and prevent you from being surprised by unexpected questions and situations. Know your unit's history, meaning of the unit crest and the unit's current mission. If being considered for promotion, know the MOS and skill level that you are being recommended for. Be familiar with the Soldier's Manual and be proficient in the duties required of that skill level. Be prepared to express yourself on current events (world and national and local level).

Board Structure

...11/06/2012 Destination Management Plan: IACC internal board structure and terms of reference Introduction Put simply by Visit Wales, destination management is “…coordinating all the activities and services which impact on the visitor and their enjoyment of a destination”. Effective, quality destination management requires the involvement of all stakeholders through clear communication and transparent decision-making. In particular, this requires pro-active engagement between the three key partners: the local authority as destination managers, the private sector as the service providers and the North Wales Regional Tourism Partnership (TPNW), acting on behalf of Visit Wales. It also requires the involvement of a range of other parties with an interest in tourism, subject to local circumstances. There also needs to be a clear structure, terms of reference and lines of communication within the private and public sector partners/groups. There is no formally prescribed model for partnership working in destinations within or between the sectors. Different arrangements are being made in different areas and the local situation might require a tailored solution(s). It will be important to be flexible and adapt any model as experience dictates. The local authority’s role and structure in the context of the DMP The local authority comprises a large number of departments, most of which involve or have a bearing on the tourism sector. These are listed below with their tourism......

Boards

...Introduction The nomination and election of a board of directors is a critical event for an organization. Selecting the right individuals to comprise the board that will provide adequate oversight and ensure alignment of management to that of shareholders and stakeholders best interests is vital to the success of the company. This paper explores how boards are formed, how individuals become part of boards, the type of individuals that should comprise a board, CEO duality and the advantages and disadvantages of having non-executive board members. How Boards are formed When forming a board of directors the c-suite should see the board and its members as a strategic partner rather than as a necessary requirement a corporation must have. The initial question that must be answered when considering forming a board of directors is what type of board does your organization need and select appropriate board leadership that meets the needs of your organization. In forming a board of directors many things must be taken into consideration such as the composition of the board, the number of board members, committee structure, roles and responsibilities, evaluation metrics for board performance and meeting frequency. Each of these elements will lead to the success of the board creating a strong platform for corporate governance. How do individuals become part of the Board of directors (Methods / Process)? In Canada upon incorporation of a company the......

MORE IMPORTANTLY, I WOULDN’T HAVE LEFT MY PREVIOUS POSITION. INSTEAD OF GOING TO MY JOB, I’M LOOKING FOR ONE. PRIOR TO MOVING TO VERO BEACH, I WAS A GIRL SCOUT LEADER AND EMPLOYED BY MARTIN COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT AND SUCCESSFULLY PASSED THEIR LEVEL II BACKGROUND POLICIES. I VOLUNTEERED LAST YEAR AT BEACHLAND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AS A SCHOOL MONITOR. I FIND IT OUTRAGEOUS TO ALLOW AN APPLICANT WHO FAILS A DRUG TEST TO HAVE A CHANCE TO GAIN EMPLOYMENT A YEAR LATER, BUT NOT ALLOW SOMEONE WHO MADE A MISTAKE MORE THAN A DECADE AGO TO TAKE A POSITION THEY WERE OFFERED. I ASK THE BOARD FOR TWO THINGS: THE FIRST IS THAT YOU ADDRESS THIS SPECIAL CLAUSE. IF YOU KEEP IT, MAKE IT CLEARLY VISIBLE ON YOUR SITE. EVEN ON THE BACKGROUND QUESTIONAIRE/RELEASE OF RECORDS CONSENT IT ONLY STATES THAT A “YES”, YOU MAY NOT BE CLEARED FOR EMPLOYMENT WITHOUT FURTHER EXPLANATION.

The Hover Board

...In 1989, “Back to the Future 2” was released in theaters. From that day on, people had become enamored with the idea of a hover board. A form of transportation that didn’t require the use of wheels. One that did not have the problems of traveling over various types of surfaces. Whether it was grass, dirt, concrete, or water. The hover board would move as long as there was enough momentum and a way for the person to push the board forward. In the 27 years since the movie, many people have tried to build the fabled hover board. From just regular people in their garage, to engineers at some of the largest companies in the world. Dustin Rubio, who as a teenager had seen the movie, created a hover craft that his daughters use to play in their driveway. It consisted of a leaf blower, some plywood, plastics, and duct tape. While, this didn’t really constitute the idea of what a hover board was, it was amazing for an everyday electrician to create it in his garage with items that almost every homeowner has laying around their garage. The writer of the “Back to the Future” trilogy, Bob Gale, stated that he imagines “the hover board floats on a magnetic field similar to magnetic levitation trains.” (Dougherty, 2014) But in reality, this is a difficult notion due to something called “Earnshaw’s Theorem,” which states, a collection of electric charges or magnetic dipoles cannot be maintained in a stable stationary equilibrium condition by the application of static fields alone.

Board Meeting

...The Board Meeting The Board meets at least five times each year and in addition, a regular update conference call takes place in the months when no formal meeting is scheduled. The agenda for each Board meeting is set by the Chairman in consultation with the Chief Executive and the Company Secretary. Board members receive a monthly report of the company’s activities which incorporates an update on progress against objectives and the management of business risks. The core activities of the Board are carried out in scheduled meetings of the Board and its Committees. Additional ad hoc meetings and conference calls are arranged to consider matters which require decisions outside the scheduled meetings Outside the scheduled meetings of the Board, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer maintain frequent contact with the other Directors to discuss any issues of concern they may have relating to the Group or their areas of responsibility, and to keep them fully briefed on the Group’s operations. To ensure that the Board sees the Company’s operations overseers, the Board normally holds at least one Board meeting each year at one of the principal overseer’s offices of the Group. This provides Senior Management from across the Group with the opportunity to present to the Board and to meet the Board members informally. It also provides the Board with an opportunity to meet a broad cross-section of staff, to assess senior managers at first hand and to review operational and......

Board Meeting

...KAYLEX MOTORS INTRO Good evening Board Members, All of us at Kaylex Motors want this company to succeed. Being a comparatively new auto business, we need to ensure we build a safe, cost effective auto that consumers trust; (the Kaylex “Renna”.) This board discussed a “cost-benefit analysis”. We at this time want you to agree with the need for added safety modifications. Let’s not make the same mistake as Ford Motor Company; The Ford Pinto Case. Ford Pinto is a car that was associated with fuel-fed crash fires. In the early 1970’s this compact vehicle showed a likelihood of catching fire when hit from behind at low speeds. (20mph). Ford needed to make a decision. Its car was in compliance with industry standards, so no laws were broken. But Ford’s own research had proved the car was deadly. Being aware of design problems with the pinto that made it more susceptible to crash related fires, Ford performed a cost benefit analysis and decided NOT to recall the Ford Pinto. It was cheaper, to pay families compensation for the loss of their family members, than to modify each car. Since last meeting, there has been considerable information gained regarding safety measures needed in our new model, RENNA, due to start production next week. We proposed extra time be allowed for modifications to design. This would cause a delay in production, but would be the wisest, most beneficial decision. We have alternatives in mind that estimated cost per vehicle would be $10.00. ......
