Welcome Letter to a New Board Member (Director)

The role of a director is of vital importance in a company as his actions largely affect the whole company.

welcome letter to director on board
While an executive or whole-time director has a much larger role to play in a company, and gets a higher remuneration, a non-executive director's role is more of an advisory in nature. Such a director is appointed after taking approval of the shareholders of the company.

In any case, it is ethical to warmly welcome a new director to the Board of the company. Firstly, the Chairman or Managing Director can write a welcoming letter to the director, and then there may be a formal welcome meeting with other directors, officers and employees.
