Board Service Boosts Careers

Do you need an enticement for attracting high-quality board members? As a recent Wall Street Journal article points out: “Executives are doing good for others — and good for their careers — by joining boards of nonprofit organizations.”

The article says that more executives are looking to serve on nonprofit boards because “they operate in an increasingly competitive and networked world … and the experience builds their networking further.”

Nonprofit board experience also can help executives strengthen their leadership skills and give them opportunities to demonstrate abilities they aren’t able to show at work, such as strategic planning or fundraising.
