Will I get on an advisory board?

Yes. Hundreds of companies build and manage their advisory boards on our platform and you'll be eligible to join them as a new advisor.

Are the advisory board positions paid?

Advisors on AdvisoryCloud primarily participate on advisory boards in exchange for affiliation as a board member, though there is potential for paid opportunities through individual project-based work. Adding board roles to your resume can increase your likelihood for promotion and salary increases, according to Harvard Business Review.

How is this different than other advisor/board placement companies?

Unlike other advisor/placement companies where you create an account and then wait until an advisory opportunity matching your skillset becomes available, AdvisoryCloud empowers members to proactively browse, apply, and join the advisory boards of their choice.

How much of my time will I be asked to commit?

Because we've taken the boardroom experience digital, you truly are able to engage with the advisory boards you're affiliated with as little or as much as you'd like. This means you're in complete control of your board experience. Many boards hold Quarterly Board Meetings via video, which require between 30-60 minutes to participate.

Will you help me get started joining boards?

Absolutely! Our Member Services team is here to help from day one. Once you get started, you’ll be offered an onboarding call where we can help set up your profile, show you how to use the platform, and apply to join your first board.

Can I write-off my Membership?

Many times, members of AdvisoryCloud are able to deduct their Membership fees paid to us against other sources of income. This depends on your unique tax situation.
