Paul Lapides, executive director of the Corporate Governance Center at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia, says that serving on the board of a corporate or government agency or nonprofit organization is a great place to start for many. "You can make a difference, meet and work with talented individuals, and get board experience," he says. "Advisory boards are also worth considering, if this is a good fit for you and the company. Please don't join any board because you want to use it as a stepping-stone to join a public company board. Do it because you think you can make a difference."
