Mercy topped the annual list of Top 25 Most Influential boards that appears in the 2014 Book of Lists.
The online survey of Business Record readers, which was conducted in September of 2013, asked participants who they think the most influential board is and asked them to pick nine other boards that they also think are influential.
The votes were tallied and IP addresses were analyzed, much as we do for Best of Des Moines, to remove suspicious voting and obvious attempts to fraudulently influence rankings.
