Eligibility requires at least part-time residence in the RTP area; a demonstrated track record of integrity, high standards of corporate governance and superior business judgment; and two of the following:

  • Prior or existing board experience, in a private or public for-profit business.
  • C-suite experience in a business or non-profit organization whose scale of organization provided substantial business and leadership skills validated by an oversight board or substantial professional investors.
  • Leadership in a non-profit board demonstrating deep exposure to corporate governance (not just fundraising).

The OnBoardNC Steering Committee will manage the nomination process and extend membership invitations to those who meet the criteria.
