Our team at Women in Retail Leadership Circle (WIRLC) hears this question regularly from our members and community at large. Therefore, we decided to produce a webinar designed to answer that question — and others like it.

On Thurs., Aug. 26 at 2 p.m. ET, WIRLC will host a 60-minute webinar titled, Getting Board Ready: The Secrets to Landing a Board Seat and Being a Great Director. The virtual event will feature a presentation by Kelly McNamara Corley, co-founder and principal of The Red Bee Group, a consulting firm that helps organizations develop board governance and organizational excellence initiatives. It will teach attendees the roles and responsibilities of corporate board membership; the best ways to present your skills and credentials to get that board interview; what board recruiters are looking for in a candidate; how to market yourself as a potential board member — and how it’s different from seeking an executive position; how to prepare your board bio, resume and LinkedIn profile; and so much more!

After attending this webinar, you’ll be energized and motivated to build upon your own personal brand, cultivate it to gain a board seat, be a better board member, and more. We guarantee it!

Register for the webinar today! The fee is $79 for non-members, while Women in Retail Leadership Circle members can attend for free! Members, please reach out to mcampanelli@napco.com for details on how to get complimentary registration.
