By Barbara Goldberg NEW YORK (Reuters) - Spring arrives in the winter-weary U.S. Northeast on Friday but the weather forecast was for more of the same: another half-foot of snow for parts of the region, prompting widespread flight cancellations and early school dismissals.

"You often don't get the enlightened thinking of reaching beyond the obvious candidates," said Hudson, who sits on the boards of Bank of America Corp and utility Southern Co., and is thinking of joining a third. Of the 478 new directors appointed to Fortune 500 boards in 2014, only 27 percent were women, according to research firm BoardEx.
