What interested me about this really short article was that it provided a very different slant on ‘getting’ board members. We typically talk about looking for board members who can bring a strategic perspective to the board, future focused, specific skill set etc. This article looks at what a prospective board member is looking for. As it says: most of the time, the "right" board member is going to assess your offer as carefully as they would a business deal. At least, they should.
