BOARD MEMBERS-ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES
A Board works on the principle of collective wisdom. The underlying principle for setting up of a board is that the collective decision making process minimizes risks and maximizes effectiveness. In that context, the individual members play a very important part in enhancing the overall effectiveness of the board. Therefore, the board must be a fine blend of individuals drawn from different walks of life & diverse sections of community.
