It has been argued that having independent Directors on the Board of your Indigenous corporation can be a great advantage. I've argued this myself in a previous article. Independent Directors provide your Board, and hence your corporation, with a wider view of the world that it operates in. No Indigenous corporation operates merely within the world of Government funding - most now have some interaction with Future Acts proponents, local commercial interests, social ventures and investment projects.
However, what are the disadvantages, if any? And if there are any disadvantages, how do you still make it work for you?
