Writing a Resume for a Board Candidacy

Posted with permission from Directors & Boards' Directors Roster.

Too often, highly qualified board of director candidates assume that their most recent job resume is perfectly acceptable to submit as a board candidate resume. And why not? It’s easy to pull out a current resume and click the “send” button. But with all the federal, regulatory and court changes taking place that will impact proxy access for board candidates, director standards will be more rigorous and candidates will be better aligned with the strategic goals of the company than in the past.
