business-woman-meeting-SHELIA RONNINGThe journey to the boardroom can, at times, be an overwhelming undertaking filled with questions about what to expect, how to prepare, and how to be an effective board member.

During this Master Class led by Women in the Boardroom CEO & Founder Sheila Ronning, you will get answers to burning boardroom questions, including:

  • What are the four main types of boards?
  • What are the responsibilities of a board director?
  • What are the risks of serving on a board?
  • Why pursue board service?
  • What is the time commitment and compensation for board service?

If you would like to serve on a corporate board, this Master Class is designed to help you uncover if it’s for you, and where to start. Listen to the recording and see where you fit in.

Here is what some attendees of the live event had to say:

“Service on Boards can be a business by itself.”

“It’s not just about WOMEN getting on boards. Presenter shares obvious experience, and it especially showed in the Q&A. She’s level-headed.”

“I don’t think others, especially women, would have thought of this.”

“I think it is a good way to start. I wish I would have had this two years ago!”
