When you get exactly the same response from one BOD member to 20+ emails well you get the idea. Why respond.
What's important is that the BOD read your email and look at all the emails and allow it to influence their decision. What we don't want is "well I don't agree with that so they are wrong". Somehow I feel that some BOD members think this way.
With all due respect, how would I know that they "read your email and look at all the emails and allow it to influence their decision" if they can not acknowledge receipt. I am not naive, I know how busy these folks are. I also won't bother telling you how many emails I process daily in my job.
What I WILL say is the responders are consistent. And that, as stated before, is something I know personally.
