The best way to land your first Board seat is to pursue a seat on a non-profit Board. It’s a great starting point to build your experience as a valuable Board member. Just make sure when you join a non-profit Board that you are legitimately connected to the mission and values of that non-profit. Typically they don’t employ the same level of rigor as public companies do in constructing their Boards, so they typically are less efficient. This makes them easier to break into but also can prove frustrating once you’re in place and looking to be effective.
