A Christmas prayer

Questions for lawyers on boards, and the rest of us as well 

Board work, although wonderfully rewarding, is also remarkably risky and especially so for "directors with specialized knowledge and expertise, such as lawyers, who are held to a higher standard of care."


Member schools elect new In Trust board members

In Trust member schools have just elected four members of the In Trust board of directors. Almost 70 percent of member schools voted, electing one new member of the board and re-electing three continuing members.
