Writing Board of Director Resumes: How to Position Your Executive Clients to Win Board Seats

Presented by: Michelle Dumas

Are you turning away executive clients seeking a board of director resume because you don’t feel confident writing one? If so, you are needlessly missing out on a lucrative niche. In this presentation, Michelle will answer all your questions and dispel the many myths and misunderstandings about board resumes. Topics covered will include the must-know differences between nonprofit and corporate boards, the ways in which board resumes differ from other executive resumes, how board candidates are selected, and the key qualifications that are sought in board candidates. Then, using examples, Michelle will show you how to craft a board of directors resume that will position your executive clients competitively to win the most desirable board seats. You will come away from this presentation with increased confidence and the knowledge you need to write standout and results-generating board of director resumes.

Three key takeaways from this session include:

  • Ways in which board of director resumes are different from other executive resumes (and the ways they are the same!).
  • How to define and showcase a unique value proposition that will competitively position your client to win desirable board seats.
  • The most in-demand board qualifications and best practices for crafting a resume that highlights them.

This one-hour recording from the 2021 Virtual Conference is $9.99 for NRWA members and $19.99 for nonmembers. It is eligible for 1 CEU.
