Record male attendance...
Thank you to the diverse mix of experienced corporate board directors and boardroom experts, recruiters, influencers and connectors who joined the board-ready executive women who make up our VIP Membership for our October 20th Annual Board Assembly at Deloitte LLP in NYC.  Our VIP Members, who are current or aspiring corporate directors and excellent candidates for private, public and advisory boards, benefitted from the structured networking that allowed them to make valuable boardroom connections. This year, we saw more male board influencers in attendance than ever before.
