Mysterious and powerful, for decades America's boardrooms have remained closed to all but a handful of director "in the club."

CEOs and directors of some of America's most prestigious corporations share their stories of what really goes on behind closed doors, who gets selected to sit on a board and who doesn't, and why being a part of this influential group should be the goal of today's up and coming executives, professionals, and community leaders.
