Are you thinking about serving on a corporate board, but aren’t sure how to begin the process? Have you already started your board journey, but would like to be more effective in your efforts? Or is becoming a director something you’d like to pursue in the future, but want to know what you can start doing now that will be helpful? 
Join FEI NYC and the Private Directors Association NY Metro Chapter on March 21st for a panel discussion that will bring varying perspectives on the board search process.

Learn about key skills/expertise public and private companies seek from finance professionals when filling board positions. Hear from those who’ve successfully landed a board seat, as well as those involved in board search, about how to best market yourself and initiate a board search.
