Appendix F

Board Biography and CV Templates

Use this worksheet to build a first draft of your own board biography. Of course, some sections may need to be modified or removed to fit your purposes. And you may choose to add sections as needed. Your career, skills, experience, and expertise are unique, and your board biography will be as well. Once you have this worksheet completed, feel free to format and edit as you wish. As you can see from Appendix E, there is no one “right” way for a board biography to look. Overall, focus on conveying your unique value as a prospective director. Finally, this appendix also includes a list of jargon words to avoid for board papers and recommends better words to use instead.
