Basically the board serves as a sort of triage for the system; at least that is how I always understood it. They check the basic information, do some level of investigation, ask some questions and note the answers, and then make a sort of recommendation. Not that unlike the nurse who saw me last in the ER. Right or wrong, agree or not, they help keep the system going.
