Get your next board seat.


Create Your Profile

Because we are the largest network of directors in the country, our members often take advantage of our unique service, NACD Board Search. Numerous board searches are happening at any given time, which is why it is important to complete your director candidacy profile and upload your most up-to-date résumé to increase your chances of being identified by our search team.Since most searches require specific criteria related to industry knowledge, operational experience, revenue growth, geographic location, or other diversity needs, be sure your profile is as detailed and accurate as possible and that it includes all board work.
