If you are an entrepreneur, business owner, or NPO leader, you may have tried to find a director for your board.  Or, possibly you want to set up an advisory board and you are involved in the same pursuit.  You may run a company or a NPO and are trying to find the right people.  Or you may be on the other side of the equation.  You may be the person that others are asking to be on their boards.  In either scenario what should you know about the liabilities, obligations and responsibilities of being a board member or member of an advisory board?  This ELO Workshop will feature three experts to highlight different aspects of being on a board.  The major take-away:  you will never think about a board the same way again!
