I borrowed this content from Michele Martin, who collects links for you that might be useful to your center or SILC as you grow and mature. This week I was at SILC Congress, and her post last Friday was so EXCELLENT that I am copying some of her links about boards. Check out (and subscribe to) her blog at http://www.newcenturycil.org/
