Get your next board seat.


Create Your Profile

As the largest network of directors in the country, our members often take advantage of our full-service board search. At any given time, NACD’s Board Recruitment team has numerous board searches ongoing. 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 includes all board work.
