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 organization to the public, along with adequately describing to the public the policies of the company or organization. In times of controversy, the role of the chairman in relaying timely information to the public is highly important, as well as possibly delicate for the chairperson in question, given that in times of crisis, they may be seen as the "face" of the troubled company.

Parole Board

...Parole System Lucas Short Social Justice & Ethics Maria Karabekou June 18, 2012 While the Parole System keeps an eye on the convicted, flaws in the parole system end up costing society more in the long run. To reduce the cost we need to make the parolees responsible for the number of visits, making it harder to get on parole will make the parolees take the process more serious. Parole system was started in 1817, it was referred to as the “good time” law, and it was set up to let inmates out early based in their good behavior (Parole System, n.d.). In 1876, they started making the sentences with a minimum and maximum time frame. At this time the prison employees were set up with a inmate to follow through with their parole. In 1930, the Division of Parole was established (Parole System, n.d.). They took over the responsibilities of the department of corrections to make sure that all of the parole responsibilities were met effectively. Forty years later the Division of parole was merged with the Department of Corrections and formed the Department of Correctional Services (Parole System, n.d.). The parole system was designed to help manage the population of our prisons. When someone is given a prison sentence they are give a time frame. For example, one may be sentenced “15 to 25 years”. This means that after their 15 years they are eligible for parole. The decision for parole is based on what the parole board...

...Hello Class, My name is Brandon Wilhite and I am a United States soldier, this isn't my first online course but it is one of the most important one. I have taken online courses before with AIU and because of the length of the course and how great the staff and faculty are I plan to complete my degree here, with that said my future educational and career goals are to complete my MBA and get my JD(Judicial Doctorate) and become a corporate attorney and run my own business and a business degree is the first step in my quest to becoming an attorney and future success. While going through the virtual campus I found the interactive reading and activities to be the most useful to me. This was because it helped me understand the content and practice what I learned. There are three basic business environments(legal, social, and economic) that affect the success of a business. The legal environment of a business is the law as it affects a business and is governed by state, country, and international laws. This includes laws on what can and can't be produced or sold, consumer and employee protection laws, tax and other financial laws, as well as many rules and regulations with regards to business ethics, code of conduct, arbitration, and when and how to seek legal advice. The social environment of a business is the factors that affect a business socially. Every business works in a society and different factors such as family, educational institutions, and religion affect......

School Board

...Obtain a study guide. The purpose of a study guide is to make you 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). Pay close attention to news programs and read the daily newspaper at least a week...

...Discussion Board Question: Think of a time when you were really dissatisfied with a job in a company or your role in a volunteer organization, student group (incl. fraternity/sorority) or as a student in a class. Describe the situation. What did you think about the situation? How did you feel about it emotionally? How did your job satisfaction influence your behavior? I once worked at an Irish restaurant while I was in high school that was completely dreadful. We worked extra long shifts with no lunch breaks would sometimes be forced to work doubles on weekends with no breaks at all and no overtime pay. The restaurant was new in town so busy was slow, I would walk away from an 8 hour shift with only 15$. The manager and owners were rude and couldn’t even remember our names and were extremely insensitive about requesting time off no matter what the circumstances were. It was the only job I could find at the time so I was stuck working it for 2 months until the summer ended, it was horrible. The job itself was exhausting from being on your feet all day and walking around the restaurant. I was constantly tired which make me grumpy and very irritable even when I wasn’t working. Because of the rudeness of the employers it caused all of us to be less friendly towards each other, which made a bad work environment. The whole situation made me become a poor employee unfortunately. I didn’t try my best and would frequently show up late and slack on my work. The lack of respect from......

...Board Report Company Name: * W Associates Executive Team Members: * CFO: * CEO: * COO: Quick Highlight of current key results that make us look the best Contribution margin of YJW | Average contribution margin in the market | 50.6% | 43.72% | Our contribution margin, high potential sale figures in the traditional market, and rising stock price prove that we are one of the most successful companies in the industry. We have made great strides in increasing our contribution margin to 50.6%, ranking second in the market. This was a result of investments geared towards automation and employee training, which in the long run, lowered production and labor costs. As our business grows in scale, our variable costs will continue to decline and our profit margin will continue to rise.  The potential traditional market estimate shows that almost a quarter of the customers within that market segment want to purchase our product. This will be an area that we will continue to capitalize on by consistently meeting our customers’ demand and earning larger market shares. Lastly, our stock price is one of the highest in the market and has seen the greatest growth over the past three years. These two figures will attract investors, allowing us to continue reducing our variable costs, improving our products, and ultimately making profit for the company.

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...

MY DRUG TEST WAS NEGATIVE AS EXPECTED, BUT I WAS TOLD THAT DUE TO A SPECIAL CLAUSE, I WAS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR EMPLOYMENT. I WAS TOLD THAT SOMETHING CAME BACK ON MY BACKGROUND CHECK AND THAT I NEEDED TO PROVE THAT I DIDN’T PLEAD NO-CONTEST TO IT. IN 2002, I WAS CHARGED FOR A MISDEMEANOR.

Board Meeting

...Report Meeting of Board Education Sr. Agnes Tram Nguyen EDU645MSEC MS School Policy and Regulations Professor: Dr. James Pedersen Felician College Date March 26th, 2015 This is a report on the regular meeting of the Board of Education which was held on December 11, 2014 at 7 p.m. in the Monsignor João Antão School No. 31, 1014 South Elmora Avenue, Elizabeth, New Jersey. There were many issues discussed during the three-hour session, including a special period of congratulations for some leaders of the Board of Education, who will be retiring next month. However, in this paper, I will only be reporting on matters regarding policies in education in general and of the schools in particular. The meeting discussed the PARCC exam. It addresses the concerns of many educators and parents who do not agree with the speed of the test. They hope primarily that the state Board of Education will delay the implementation of PARCC. Mr. Rodriguez stated that one of the biggest issues is that the test is only in English and will not be available in Spanish. This, he noted, will affect urban school districts where the majority of residents speak Spanish. He said that educators want to present the exam to parents and help the community to understand the new exam in order to get the necessary supports. The project requires a lot of money that has to go into technology, and students need to be able to use computers every day. Another issue was about a comment...

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...

Discussion Board

...Iesha Fox July 19th, 2012 MGMT 250 Discussion Board 1 Prof. John Hargiss Entrepreneurship Discussion Question 1 Over the past few years, our economy has gotten worse and worse, but I would still take the risk of opening up my own business. To me, now would be the perfect time to open up. I think this because no matter how bad the economy is, that won’t stop anyone from going out and purchasing anything from stores. Although there are pros and cons to starting your own business right now, I would still go for it. I believe before anyone opens up their own business, you have to know what you are getting into. You have to have a lot of knowledge and have to be very committed to what you are about. I think before starting your own, you need to at least work in a business for maybe two or three years. That way you know what goes on inside the business. Try to talk to someone that owns a business so that you can get some key pointers what will help along the way. Another important thing to consider before you get started is money. You have to have money to make money. I know it takes a lot of money to get started, so you have to think are you really prepared to start your own business. Most people try to get loans from banks. But to do this, you need a credit score of “700”. You need to be able to manage your money, if you don’t know how the business won’t last long because you’ll soon go bankrupt because you aren’t keeping up. The statement “A student whose main...
