Seeking First Board
Share |
"There are many reasons to join a Board...from gaining valuable professional development as you progress in your career to staying active and engaged in business once you retire. One way to get involved in Board Service is to first summarize your unique qualifications in a brief one paragraph Bio. Then, identify companies that you believe could benefit from your skills/experience. And then start NETWORKING with Board Director Recruiters and at Board Director Events and everything in between to get your name out there linked to your ability to fulfill a relevant need on those target company Boards. Importantly meet with Directors who are like you in their skills/experience who now serve on their fill of  boards. They are the ones getting the recruiter calls now. Ask them to give those recruiters YOUR name and Bio the next time they call."  - Mary Kay Haben (Member of The Chicago Network since 1998)
