Why would this be within the community engagement department?  I'm not
saying you're wrong, but I'm not actually seeing any logical explanation
for it being a CE issue.  It seems more a legal issue (in respect of
board/executive transparency) or human resources issue (in respect of
NDAs).  It's pretty obvious from what has bubbled to the surface over the
last few months that transparency was NOT just an issue from the community
perspective.  Perhaps a transparency officer in Legal might make sense.
