Life Hack:

Becoming a

Board Member

with Erica & Lauren

On this week’s episode, Lauren and Erica chat with friend of the pod Samantha Malach about her experience serving as a board member for a number of organizations both in the USA and Canada. She served on the Calgary Allied Arts Foundation (CAAF) board for six years including an 18 month term as the board President, four years as Board Director for Dress For Success Calgary, and is a current board member for Dress For Success Denver. 

The hacks we cover in today’s episode are:

1 – Use your network as a tool to find the right board position for you

2 – Volunteer with organizations before seeking a board position

3 – Understand the time and financial commitment of the organization’s board members

4 – Do your research – make sure the organization fits in your venn diagram.
