Gerald Rockwell's Profile

We are in the process of improving our by-laws. I am looking for example term limits from other organizations. Any ideas?

(President & CFO, |

The Non-Profit where I am both an Officer (VP) and a Board Member has 3 year terms and a max of 3 terms.

Board members are elected to "flights", where 1/3rd of the Board is elected year 1, year 2 and year 3.

This way the Board has turnover and doesn't become stale.
