Today, I’m introducing you to my friend Charles King. Charles isn’t like most headhunters — he doesn’t primarily focus on filling executive roles and occasionally run a few board searches. No, Charles ONLY focuses on board positions. He’s done it for 20+ years. He’s filled over 600 director positions.
Joining me on the show today is Beth Francis, CEO of the Essex County Community Foundation. ECCF holds an annual event to educate nonprofit board members.
The dream scenario is a board seat landing in your lap. Not having to hunt for it. To network for it. To hustle to find it. The good news: That’s actually possible!
