, , , and

In this paper, we propose an empirical study of the centrality of actors in network. The data was collected among publicly available information of the boards members of organizations, including charities in Québec. The main contribution of this study is to show, with a dataset containing all charity organization, the structure of this influence network. We also show that professionals (accountants and lawyers in this case) have a more strategical position within the network.
