There are more than 7,000 members affiliated through the network, and more than 2,000 members have joined boards over the last five years.

The partnership presents a unique opportunity for Qualified Risk Director® profiles to be included in the Equilar BoardEdge database, recognized as a leading technology solution for board search with more than 1.5 million executive and board member profiles.
