Director Development & Referral

One of the Private Directors Association® MEMBER BENEFITS is the Director Development & Referral program with one-on-one coaching, mentoring, and education as it relates to Board roles and responsibilities, as well as résumé and interview preparation.

As a Member you have access to individuals who are currently serving on Private Company Boards of Directors and are knowledgeable on how to prepare for and function on these types of Boards.  These individuals volunteer their time to work with Members individually and in groups on a variety of topics.

As a participant in the Director Training course you will have access to an in-depth training manual titled, ”Board Director Training and Preparation”. This document, prepared by the Midwest Family Business Advisors, covers a wide range of topics. 

If you are a member and would like to arrange for training and access to these files, please contact the Administrator at admin@privatedirectorsassociation.org. If you are not yet a member and wish to apply for Membership, CLICK HERE.
