Board of Directors

From Hive76 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

From The List: "To move towards incorporation, we will need a board of directors. A Board of Directors is 5-8 people that meet 4 - 6 times a year, for 6-8 hours (a day). They review what the group is up to as a whole, and advise/review/grow. I think this meeting should be followed by a party, but that's just my$0.02. I'd say 2-3 of the people should be non Hive members who have an outside view on things. Elected every other year, or when someone steps down."
