    How is it not a conflict of interest for President Ross and the Chancellor of A&T to be on the BCBS board? Shouldn’t they resign?

    1) It is a not-for-profit, not a nonprofit. Two completely different animals under the tax code. 2) Yes, lots of not-for-profits pay board members that much. 3) Executive compensation for similarly sized companies is higher nationwide than what they make. 4) If you want a company to be well run you have to compete on the compensation front. You can pay them what a janitor makes, but you will end up with janitor quality management as the managers will leave the company for better paying jobs. It is basic economics.
