Nominating Candidates for the Operation of Your Corporate Boards

Corporate boards serve as an oversight layer between the managers who run the company and its shareholders. They are accountable for establishing policies, supervising the officers who run the day-today business and ensuring it operates legally and that its financial stability has been protected. They also serve as an intermediary between the business and its stakeholders like employees, clients vendors, suppliers/vendors community organizations and lenders.

In order to fulfill their responsibilities the board should have the necessary capabilities and expertise. The majority of boards recruit members with diverse backgrounds that can offer advice and support on the areas of concern. A board might require someone with experience in international finance, or someone who is familiar with a specific regulatory agency.

In general, most boards are legally required to have at least one member who is an officer of the company. This is to ensure that the board member is aware of and can respond to any problems that could be confronted by the management team.

As the public becomes more interested in their business the perception of as an “old-boy” network is changing. This means that more seats are becoming available for the general public to apply for. It is important to carefully evaluate the benefits and risks of a particular job prior to applying.
