Thanks, Sid, for an outstanding webcast today! You have such an amazing grasp of boards and what it takes to be effective - specifically the types of change, the catalyst for change, and the responsibilities content. Very much appreciate your sharing your wisdom and insights with us! Very clear, practical, and ministry-tested perspectives. —MB, Consultant, Michigan
