“Maverick: An independently minded person who refuses to abide with the dictates of or who resists adherence to a particular group.”

A board is more than a collection of individuals. Every respected authority on the functioning of boards suggests that in order for a board to be effective as an entity entrusted to govern an organization on behalf of its owners, it must act as a single unit. By definition, that means group action rather than individual member action.
