Great message Bill! Thanks for your efforts toward continuous improvement to our industry. Always appreciated.
I think this is a topic that is very fundamental, CU Leaders need to be reminded of it often. Younger board and/or team members will offer an alternative perspective but also assist in maintaining the "CU Bench Strength". With that stated, while I think the input of younger board/team members is most definitely needed, these folks must also understand that its necessary that they learn a few things from their elders/mentors prior to aggressively establishing their case. In other words, tactful young representation on the board would be most appropriate.

Bill makes a great point for the need of YP in leadership positions.The average age of a board members are those who are in their 60s. For this reason, I think most YP are intimidated by the fact of the sheer experience of their predecessors, or simply are just unaware. YP's are energetic and eager to progress their careers, which should only be encouragement to apply to a board. With most board members on the verge of retirement, Bill explains perfectly the opportunities that could be available.

Bill has highlighted the obvious gap between CU boards/ leadership and YPs which, left unaddressed, does not bode well for the industry. In fact the mergers within the industry may be due to lack of vision- direct consequence of not mentoring YPs into leadership and board positions.
