Partial Transcript: One of the things of interest to some of the later persons who've become associated with the Lou Tate Foundation may be our early position and respective board members.

Segment Synopsis: Mr. Fowler describes the difference between the early board being comprised of all "working" board members, and then later nominating and adding other board members who would not be quite as active, but may be able to broaden the impact of the organization.
