Corporate Board Member Website Announces Top Board Retreat Destinations in Continental U.S.

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 15 /PRNewswire/ — The Corporate Board Member website today published its selection of the top quality and board-friendly resort destinations in the continental U.S. for companies to hold off-site educational, planning, and governance retreats.

Resort destinations were judged on a variety of criteria, including property security and privacy, board meeting facilities and amenities, customer service ratings, available technology in meeting rooms and guestrooms, accessibility to both standard and private travel options, range and quality of recreational activities and private dining options, overall resort and climate appeal, and unique features and benefits.

“Directors of public companies have been mandated to become more educated while continuing to participate in the oversight of companies’ planning, operations, and financial performance. This is resulting in an increase in off-site retreats to help directors best accomplish these tasks,” said TK Kerstetter, president of Corporate Board Member. “While there are certainly many places corporate boards can meet that are less expensive, the purpose of Corporate Board Member’s retreat review is to highlight the destinations that offer the utmost in privacy, security, quality service, meeting facilities, recreational activities, and amenities.”

Kerstetter added, “We support the concept that a board should do the right thing and sometimes going to a neighboring hotel versus a resort can present the right image. At the same time it is important not to sacrifice a board’s security or productivity especially when it is so hard to successfully book all of a company’s directors due to busy individual schedules.”

The Top 10 Board Retreat Destinations for 2004 – 2005 are (in alphabetical order):

Boca Raton Resort & Club (Florida)
Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas (Texas)
The American Club (Wisconsin)
The Breakers Palm Beach (Florida)
