Frankfort, United States - September 16, 2020 /PressCable/ —

CHICAGO, IL: The Private Directors Association (PDA) has had great successes with several companies, helping them experience the value of a board with independent directors. Specifically, M. Holland Company and Matot, Inc. have each given the PDA accolades because of the excellent job the PDA has done while working with them.

The PDA Model Board Meeting℠ is a way for private companies to jump-start the process of creating a board with independent directors. They engage and work with private companies that want to have ongoing, independent directors but are not sure how to get started. The PDA Model Board Meeting℠ approach enables them to begin in a fairly easy way by assigning independent directors from their network to help them.

“The PDA Model Board Meeting℠ (MBM) was great for M. Holland and the evolution of our Board,” noted Ed Holland, CEO of M Holland Company. “The MBM process and the PDA directors we selected shared leading practices in preparing for and running a Board meeting, which we have implemented. Following the MBM experience, we added an additional independent director and plan to add more as our Board continues to develop. The MBM process was instrumental in our journey.”

The PDA is comprised of over 1,000 members with high levels of experience on multiple boards. When a private company signs on for MBM, the PDA works with them to select several board members that have the skill and experiences required. The PDA has chapters nationwide, with its largest chapter located in Chicago.

Highly experienced independent board members can help companies in a variety of ways including ownership and leadership succession, strategy, capital allocation and more. PDA is well known as being a great first step companies can take when they realize they could benefit from the knowledge and expertise of a board with experienced independent directors but aren’t quite sure where to start or how to properly vet the board members they know they need.

“We had such a valuable experience with our PDA Model Board Meeting℠ (MBM) at Matot, Inc. that we set up an ongoing Advisory Board,” noted Cece Matot, Co-Owner of Matot, Inc. “Our MBM directors gave us actionable advice that we implemented immediately and, overall, it was one of our best exercises as a management team that we have ever had. I highly recommend the PDA Model Board Meeting℠ to any business that wants to grow and achieve better management communication.”

The PDA’s work with M. Holland Company and Matot, Inc. are just two recent examples of success stories where the PDA has significantly helped companies with their board members’ expertise.

Putin engineers shakeup that could keep him in power longer

Sep 21, 2020

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin engineered a surprise shakeup of Russia's leadership Wednesday, proposing changes to the constitution that could keep him in power well past the end of his term in 2024. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev resigned his post after Putin announced the proposed constitutional amendments. Putin kept his longtime ally in the Kremlin's leadership structure, appointing him to the newly created post of deputy head of the presidential Security Council. The shakeup sent shock waves through Russia's political elites who were left pondering what Putin's intentions were and speculating about future Cabinet appointments. Putin’s proposed constitutional reforms, announced...

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Sep 21, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Sep 21, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal.

Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Sep 21, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns. Relatively...
