Directorship

A seat on the board of directors of a company or other organization. A directorship allows one to have a direct say in a company's policies, particularly regarding dividend payments, the hiring and firing of major executives, and so forth. One receives a directorship as the result of a shareholder vote. Generally speaking, directors are nominated on the basis of whom they intend to represent, whether that be management, a particular block of shareholders, or even the company's employees.
