Qualifications to Serve on the

Leadership Profile

Individuals who are invited to serve on a board of advisors should have several years of executive experience. The board members should have experience leading people, projects, programs, or companies. The institute and member organizations relies on its advisors to guide it on establishing policies, implementing strategies and achieving goals. The fiduciary nature of a advisor's oversight requires the board members to be able to read, understand and offer suggestions and comments on financial statements.

Industry-specific experience

Frequently, experience in a specific sector or area of interest may prompt an invitation to a business person or community leader to serve on our board. Our advisors represent diverse areas of the world and have insight on a range of products and services.

An area of expertise

Balanced boards require a range of experience. Typically, entities try to ensure that our board of expert advisors represent key areas they need to provide proper oversight of activities for the kind of work they do. These could include expertise in such areas as Information Technology, legal, financial management, human resources, Aviation, Aerospace, education, health, marketing, business, public/policy sector or fund raising or philanthropic activities.


A key asset of a board member is the relationships he or she has established and can use to help the institute, member organizations, clients and sponsors accomplish their goals. This could be access to community leaders and groups, to individuals with money, to grassroots organizations, or to government contacts. Non-profit boards especially look to the ability of each board member to provide relationships that aid in raising funds.


Our Board of Advisors seeks to be representative of the constituents the organization serves, including ethnic diversity, age and sex. Representing an aspect of diversity as a director is important to the board's work. This allows a different point of view and special insights to be offered.


Board Advisors must be able to commit the time necessary to responsibly fulfill their commitment to the organization, and providing Advisory services to the Institute and it's clients. This includes advisors training, analyzing financial statements, reviewing board documents before board or client meetings, attending board meetings, serving on committees to which they are assigned, showing up at fund raising events, making donor calls and doing whatever else the organization requires.
