Today marks the first day of our winter shutdown, and we are very much looking forward to a couple weeks of R&R. We hope you're able to enjoy some downtime as well, time with family and friends and a good book—and maybe even a Hallmark movie or two! 


It's hard to believe this is our seventh year in business, the seventh time we've closed out a calendar year and looked forward a new year with new adventures and new challenges. Dan and I started this publication hoping we could provide the highest quality insight and intelligence to the fund governance market. We knew we had the right stuff (years of experience and institutional knowledge), and we hoped the market would support us. You did—and continue to—and we are so grateful. Thank you for being here for us and for being loyal readers and sources of information. We wish you the absolute best this holiday season and hope for you a happy, healthy 2023! 


Before we all take our leave, however, I must point out some of the highlights of our last few weeks of coverage for the year: Check out our latest 10 Things... list, which covers what fund boards are expecting to have to deal with in 2023; catch up on plans to combine the boards that oversee Putnam Funds and Putnam ETFs; read an insightful Viewpoints, penned by Sidley Austin's Jay Baris and Nathan Greene, about how—and why—the role of independent fund directors has changed over the decades, don't miss details on Manning & Napier's search for a new independent director, and more. Download our latest monthly PDF, and click around our site to make sure you're not missing anything.


We'll see you on the flip side (we're back Jan. 3, 2023). Stay safe and well. 


For now,


Hillary Jackson, founding editor
