We heavily recommend using LinkedIn to generate the kinds of relationships that lead to board appointments. However, to do this you must have a robust profile that accurately reflects your experience (and most importantly your success) and fully demonstrates what you can offer a board.
A Board Ready CV is different both in terms of tone, content and structure and can make the difference between a success application and an unsuccessful one. So, regardless of how much weight you think a board resume carries (they carry a lot of weight) it is best to get one professionally written at the beginning of your board search.
