HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2010 3 SBDC Report ' A board of advisors can keep a business on track By J. ROY MILLER, State Direc- torNew Mexico Small Business Development Center Network A business doesn't have to be big to benefit from the advice and expertise of other profession- als. A savvy entrepreneur will as- semble a board of trusted advis- provide feedback and sug- gestions for leading the organi- zation. Unlike a board of directors, an advisory board comprises people with no legal authority, fiduciary responsibilities or other obligations to the business. Terms of membership Before joining an advisory board, potential members should know what is expected of them. tuarles Because they will learn confiden- tial information about the com- pany, board members "are ex- pected to sign agreements to not disclose information about -- and not compete with -- the com- pany. Anyone who refuses to sign a nondisclosure and non-compete agreement should not be on the advisory board. Because board members of- ten Serve without compensation, an entrepreneur shouldn't expect these individuals to provide free advice within the scope of their professions or careers. Requests for advice should be general, and it's a good idea to plan meetings around meals. These terms should be spelled out in a written invitation to prospective board members. Participants should know how frequent meetings will be, what day and time they'll be and any other commitments they'll be expected to make. An attorney should review the invitations and any other Abby M0reno Allen Abby Moreno Allen, 54, a resident of Bosque Farms, for- merly of Lordsburg, entered eter- nal rest Saturday, August 28, 2010 at her residence.- She was born February 12, 1956 to Miguel Moreno and Maria Rodriguez in Lordsburg, NM.

To send condolences, visit documents related to the advisory board before formal requests are made. What kind of advice to ex- pect An advisory board is rou- tinely expected to weigh in on the implementation and review of internal and external business policies, capital needs and pos- sible funding sources, plans for growth and diversification, agree- ments regarding conflicts of in- terest or confidentiality of infor- mation and marketing and pub- lic relations campaigns. Before deciding who could be the best sources of such ad- vice, the business owner should evaluate his own skills and con- sider the types of challenges the company typically faces, as well as special but predictable chal- I lenges. He should visualize how the business might loo.k a year later because of the advis'ory board's involvement. And an hon- est appraisal of what aspects of the business make him most anx- ious will help the business owner know what kinds of help he needs to feel more confident. Time to choose After the leader has identi- fied the types of experience that will most benefit his business, he c/n start identifying individuals from those fields of expertise. The qualities to look for in a board member include objectivity, hon- esty, the ability to work collaboratively with the leader and other board members and a personal interest in hellping the business succeed. The most effective board members are people w'hom the business owner respects for. their accomplishments or their general integrity. And it certainly helps to have people with connections to other business resources.
