100WHF Nonprofit Board Initiative Launch Event: Ready to Serve on a Nonprofit Board?
Many executives view service on a nonprofit board as a fulfilling experience that permits them to share expertise with a cause and community. Others see nonprofit board service as a stepping stone to garner experience that will be useful for joining the board of a corporation or private company. 100WHF focused on:
• how to be identified as a board candidate
• what the selection process is like
• what the fiduciary responsibilities and financial obligations of Board members are
• how to make your presence felt and how to groom yourself for the next phase in your career
