Arlington, VA – March 13, 2022
National Association of Corporation Directors (NACD) is pleased to announce that Linda Smith, President of CERES Technology Advisors, Inc., is recognized as NACD Directorship Certified™️.

NACD Certified Directors, who earn NACD Directorship Certification®, signal to boards, investors, and other stakeholders that they possess the highest commitment to continuing director education available in the United States.

The NACD Directorship Certification program, the nation’s premier certification for board directors, provides a tangible assessment of a director’s understanding of the essential knowledge required to lead in today’s boardrooms.

“I pursued NACD Directorship to enhance the effectiveness of private company boards,” said Linda Smith, NACD.DC. “For private company boards, the path to great governance is rife with potential pitfalls that public companies have no choice but to avoid, while challenges around liquidity, business continuity, growth, strategy, risk, and human capital loom large.”

“NACD Certified Directors demonstrate their keen awareness that directorship is a profession that, like all professions, requires continuous learning,” said Peter R. Gleason, NACD’s CEO. “Linda is leading the way in achieving and maintaining the highest credential available to directors in the United States.”
