Make-it-Fly® Alumni Advisory Board

Frequently Asked Questions

How do these boards differ from the Make-it-Fly® Advisory Board 101?

Alumni Advisory Boards are made up of Advisory Board 101 graduates who are committed to growing their companies, and who want to maintain a lifestyle of strategic goal setting and accountability. These boards have 12 to 14 members in non-competing fields and meet once a month.

The format is less structured, and time is devoted to discussion of members’ real-time issues.

What sort of commitment is involved?

Members commit to the following:

  • A minimum membership of six months (some members continue for years)
  • Weekly accountability with a buddy
  • Regularly setting 30-day goals

What is the biggest value for Alumni Advisory Board members?

  • Candid feedback and fresh perspectives from fellow board members—sometimes, we are too close to our own situations to see with objectivity

  • A caring and encouraging support system

  • An affordable way to maintain your own business advisory board

  • Continual exposure to a variety of resources and networks through other members

  • Access to quarterly Alumni Board members-only workshops on pertinent topics requested by members

When and where do these boards meet?

Alumni Boards meet once a month, from 9 a.m. to noon, 3 to 6 p.m. or 4 to 7 p.m., at our office conference room, 355 South Teller Street, Lakewood.

What is the meeting format?

Members start by sharing their greatest business successes and challenges since the last meeting, progress made on their 30-day goals and describing any specific needs they would like board members’ input on. Two board members will then make brief presentations to the board and receive requested feedback. After that, the board addresses other member needs, 30-day goals are shared and accountability buddies for the month assigned.

Do you plan to start new Alumni Advisory Boards?

Because each board is comprised of non-competing business owners, we currently have a wait list in some categories. We want to provide quality facilitation and assistance to all board members, so we have limited the numbers of boards. We plan to start a new Alumni Advisory Board in early summer 2007.
