I totally understand that real life gets in the way. I travel for work 
as well, and it makes things difficult. I think the most important thing 
is to be transparent about it when you may not be able to make it, and 
simply say so. There are other ways than just the board meeting to 
contribute to being a SLOB, however I don't think I'm incorrect in 
stating that the meetings are a critical place for actual collaboration 
to happen, or at least should be.
