I have gotten to know Margaret since she joined the Board of the NACD as Chairman and President of the CT Chapter. In this non-profit position, she has brought the needed strategic focus and energy to revitalize the NACD chapter’s role in this rich community of director talent. She has reached out and recruited numerous additions to the board to help the NACD CT ‘s efforts to educate directors about good governance practices, provide a forum for peer exchange and offer programs to stimulate thought and discussion and is rebuilding the infrastructure and outreach to expand its membership. Using skills clearly developed during her professional career in the media industry, Margaret is demonstrating to her fellow directors why she is a good candidate for additional for profit board opportunities.
