OnTheBoard (OTB) is a project dedicated to providing valuable and timely information and resources to the leadership of smaller organizations including board members/directors, independent owners, and other individuals that need to be well informed when reporting to a board or board committee.

Content - OTB contributors work daily researching the areas they advise their clients on and routinely report their findings to Boards of Directors and other responsible parties. They then bring this same information to your attention.

Limited Resources - Smaller organizations typically cannot employ on a full-time the same talent that brings you the OTB content but nonetheless, you may have the same oversight responsibilities. Our goal at OTB is to help by keeping you informed on the relevant topics of the day but with little effort so that it does not add work to your day. Our periodic briefings take about 60 seconds to review when they arrive in your inbox. View content from past briefings here.

Benefit - Our content will help keep you well prepared to perform your duty to best serve and protect your company, the workforce, and your customers. Although OTB primarily focuses on the areas of technology, cybersecurity, and regulatory compliance, various other topics will occasionally be highlighted. And regardless of the specific industry our content may reference, all topics generally apply in some way to other industries.

As a leader, you have a responsibility to make the best possible decisions to ensure the well-being of your organization. We welcome your repeated visits and hope you will consider joining our group. How to join.
