Why be on a board?
To expand your knowledge and networks
It’s an effective way to “give back”
To mix with the other interesting people on the board
To “signal ambition” in your career
How to get on a board?
Be noticed – step forward. It’s amazing what happen when you put one foot in front of the other one
Being on a NFP board is the best experience you’ll ever get
Follow your values
Step up – say “yes, I’ll do that”
Don’t worry if you don’t have any idea at the start – talk to staff, stakeholders, others about the organisation and you’ll learn
One of the questions was about the Victorian Women’s Register – if you are interested in Board roles and not already on this register, get on it. It now seems that all Vic Gov board roles are distributed to the list.
