Duke University has selected secure board portals provider BoardVantage for the electronic distribution of written materials to the university’s board of trustees.
Joe Ruck, president and CEO of BoardVantage, said: We were pleased to see that our success with The Duke Endowment has also been noticed by Duke University. BoardVantage has a growing roster of higher education clients, which goes to show that board portals are not just for the F-1000.
Richard Riddell, vice president and university secretary, said: With 36 trustees spread across – and beyond – the US, including many who travel extensively, distribution of our board materials was becoming increasingly complex. We expect this will enhance the effectiveness of communication with our trustees, reaching them wherever they are and whenever these volunteers are able to devote time to Duke business. I also see electronic distribution of board materials as an environmentally sensible substitute for the costly and resource-intensive shipments of board books across the country.
