As Owen has pointed out, adding more people who you believe to be unqualified doesn’t make it easier for the people you believe to be qualified to get the work done, it just saddles them with more committees to entertain.

Myself, I believe that there are plenty of good candidates, but I believe that nomcoms haven’t done a great job of putting them on slates.  Again, a larger board doesn’t solve that problem.

So, I’m still looking for a problem that increased board size solves.  Because I’m very aware of the costs.
