In a recent Agenda article, Gunster shareholder Bob Lamm was quoted on the risk of in-person board meetings as the coronavirus spreads across the globe. He discusses the considerations companies should make in regards to these scheduled meetings. Lamm says that if boards are able to hold a meeting via video, that is preferable to telephonic.
