Why AGB OnBoard

“AGB would not put its name on, or launch an initiative such as AGB OnBoard if we didn’t think it would add value. In this time of heightened concerns facing higher education and enhanced pressures facing fiduciary boards, the time was right for a governance solution to help facilitate better outcomes.”

– Ken Knueven, AGB Senior Consultant
