Today, the board reviews some 30 reports, one of which is many pages long.
Under the proposed schema the board might review some 50 reports, each of
which is several paragraphs long, and the net length of the monthly board

commentary usually offered by the VP would still be there, observing the
comings and goings of general@ activity.
