Course Description:

Serving on a federal/state/county/city board or commission is an excellent way to serve your community. It provides an opportunity to have a voice in decision making and to serve as a bridge between government and the community ensuring oversight and raising awareness of important community issues. Having more women in these roles is a critical component of WELD’s mission given the positive economic impact women have when they are in leadership roles.


A special corporate board training track will be available again this year.  This track consists of three breakout sessions that will feature corporate directors and experts on public and private company board service, including venture capital boards and boards of family-owned businesses.  These sessions will provide an intimate opportunity to connect with corporate directors; therefore, attendance will be capped.  All those who register for this session will be able to submit their bios to the directors on the panels.  This is a great opportunity to get your name out there to those who currently serve on for-profit boards.

Due Date for Bio Submission to WELD: May 31, 2020, 5:00pm (We are sorry, but extensions cannot be granted under any circumstances.)

Submit to: Barb Smoot at
