Have you considered creating an advisory board for your business? Have investors made establishing a legal board of directors a requirement for funding? If you’re an entrepreneur looking to attract and leverage board members to help grow your business, then this is the workshop for you.

Join us on Monday, March 25, for a full-day workshop on governance, entitled Start-Ups and their Boards. The seminar will be facilitated by BoardWorks Consulting, a firm of governance and strategic planning experts. You'll learn about the role boards can play in helping you grow your business successfully.

There will be plenty of opportunity for practical discussion about different types of boards as well as tips and tools to help you successfully recruit ideal board members for your business. The proper "care and feeding" of boards, once established, will also be reviewed.
