Board Members Pros and Cons

The benefits of serving on a board include learning about leadership, prestige, and networking opportunities. Cammy and Ali also noted that it’s a way to get C-level skills in areas like governance, financials, marketing and public relations/communications while helping to shape the strategy and make decisions that impact a business.

You are able to find opportunities by looking at nonprofit organizations in your community. Our panelists suggest identifying those that you admire and then contacting them to see whether they have a seat open, or have an active volunteer position. They also suggest attending an event similar to a career fair which is a match for boards.

As a board member, you’ll be required to be present for meetings and provide strategic advice when needed. Additionally, you’ll be responsible for fundraising. Our panelists suggested you choose an organization where you feel comfortable contributing at a level that is comfortable for you.

One of the major issues the panelists discussed was the necessity to keep track of paperwork and other responsibilities. This is especially true as boards become more diverse and multi-cultural. They recommend looking for tools to streamline these processes, and stay connected to fellow board members via email and verbal communication.

The panelists also discussed how being a part of a board could be extremely fulfilling. They suggest finding an issue that you are passionate about and becoming an advocate for it to give you a purpose in your work.
