Governance guidelines, anyone?

I came across the National Association of Corporate Directors website that contains a good summary of some generally accepted governance guidelines (GAGG?) put out by several different organizations.
Jokes aside, this is a good go-to site for looking up relevant rules and guidelines. Here's a list:
