If you are an aspiring board director or looking for your next board seat, you do not want to miss this program! Join us for an hour-long program followed by a networking cocktail reception.

The program will leverage a panel of directors to answer key questions including:

  • What does a company board actually do and why?
  • What are the roles and responsibilities of a corporate director? How are those different from those of the management team?
  • Why is there emphasis on having a diverse board and what are the benefits?
  • What do companies look for in prospective board members?
  • What does the board search entail for the candidate and how best to prepare for that experience?
  • How should a new board member “on-board” and get up-to-speed quickly?
  • How is a board structured to achieve its work?
  • What informational resources are available to learn about being a director?
