Plus the time needed to parse through regular mails to board-list,
identify any immediate actions items and potentially delegate any tasks
where possible. All in all I'd put it at about 4-5 hours a week in my
opinion. Anything less and I feel that other people would be more suited
to the position.

Just my 2 cent.
