The CGO might chair the meetings, or might delegate someone else for that task. That would depend on the specific skills of the persons available. Carver says, "Briefly put, the responsibility of this "first among equals" is to interpret and guide to fruition policies created by the board about its own job. Some of those policies relate to the discipline to which the Board has committed itself, some to the mechanics of the Board-CEO connection, and some to more philosophical matters. But in all events, the chair is more broadly a 'chief governance officer' than simply a convener of presiding official during meetings."
