How much should I disclose about an old DUI (more than twenty years) to a prospective employer?

QUESTION:  I am interested in getting roles on both corporate and nonprofit boards. How do I write my resume for this purpose? Do I need two different resumes – one for corporate board roles and another for nonprofit board opportunities?

Laura Smith-Proulx, An Expert Resume

To target corporate boards, build a short version of your resume detailing strategic contributions such M&A, growth, turnarounds, and value creation, plus leadership, speaking, and industry expertise. Nonprofit board resumes should also describe the causes you care about, plus your fundraising, marketing, or event planning experience. Both these resumes can use a summarized work history.
