Serving on one or more boards is a logical part of many career plans. If you're considering becoming a board member, you'll need to think about why you want to be part of the governance of an organization, what type of mission attracts you, whether for profit or not for profit is appropriate, and what assets and reputation you bring to a table.

This is more than saying, "I'm ready to join a board," then waiting for search firms to respond or grabbing whatever passes by then regretting it later. Given that you'll have fiduciary or fund raising responsibility as a board member, a lot is at stake.

Pam Lassiter's experience as co-chair of the Corporate Board Committee for a major professional group and participation in multiple board associations along with her own board membership gives her the knowledge and the process that enables you to develop the right strategies for the right boards. Ask about the two levels of our Corporate Director Program and we can talk about which one is the right one for you.
