Executive/Board placement firms as well as Nominating Committees commonly have a detailed evaluation checklist that is frequently referenced throughout their search and vetting process. However, when it comes to Board Candidates going through a vetting process, it is not as common for these candidates to have a detailed and process-oriented approach to properly do their own 'counter-vetting' of the organization and Board they aspire to join. Yes, almost all Board Candidates will have a handful of questions, but in most cases they are not systematically evaluating the Board in topic areas that matter most for success. This can prove to be a big mistake. Join me to learn the right questions to ask before saying "yes" to the seat.
