The American College of Corporate Directors has a robust, director placement program. Public and private companies are offered, free of charge, the opportunity to access the many experienced, qualified members whose skills match the director search criteria.
The director placement program is available to members holding one of the four Professional Directors Certifications. When a company calls with a request for CV’s from members who fit the board seat search criteria, the ACCD internal database research begins with the top tier group, Executive Masters Professional Director Certification holders. If suitable candidates aren’t found in that group, the internal search continues through Masters, Advanced and Professional Certified directors until suitable candidates are located.
Once identified, the CV’s of the members are forwarded to the companies looking to fill the board seat/seats for their evaluation. The candidates then are contacted directly by the company.
The Director Placement program has identified many board seat opportunities and many member/company connections have been successful.
