Event - DLA Piper
A SEAT AT THE (BOARD) TABLE
The what, how and why of a career as a Board member
A Board appointment is a tangible symbol that you have reached the next level in your professional life. It is an acknowledgement of your achievements and a recognition that you have valuable skills and experience that will benefit others. But how exactly does one go about attaining a Board position? When is the right age and stage? What skills are required? How do you begin the process?
