An effective Healthcare District Trustee is one who understands and adheres to…
My guess is that if you asked 100 Healthcare District Trustees to finish that sentence, the responses would be quite varied. Of interest to me would be the number of responses that correctly referenced the legal duties of a Trustee:
- The duty of care
- The duty of loyalty
- The duty of obedience
Trustees hold positions of public trust and the decisions they make on behalf of the constituents they represent should consistently reflect conformance with these three duties. How does a Trustee demonstrate adherence to these duties? What are the implications of acting in a manner contrary to these duties? Does anyone care? Where do the Trustee obligations stop and the District Executive obligations begin?
