The 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 session, you will get answers to crucial boardroom questions, including:

* Responsibilities of a director
* The risks of serving
* Time commitment of serving

* Compensation for serving

* What skills and experience are boards looking for?
* What boards are you qualified for?
* Why serve on a board?
* What you can do to get your seat at the table


Who should attend? Law firm partners, general counsel, deputy general counsel and others in senior-level roles. Even if you’re considering board service in the long term, not the short term, it’s crucial to know well in advance what you need to be doing now to get your seat at the table later on.
