Advisory_Board_Planning by ScoreSMB


									The keys to creating a valuable advisory board are to:
1) identify skills/advice you require and 2) identify candidates that meet targeted needs and clearly outlining expectations and honorarium if any.

Advisory Boards are often unpaid. If you offer an honorarium, make it clear in a letter up front what it is and if it is one time or not. Note the value.
Some candidates may want to assist you, but may not be able to accept an honorarium due to their firm's rules, which is fine.
