Adding Value in a Board Meeting

Just started my new post MBA PE job. I have been staffed on some portfolio companies (not as a director, but I tag along the fund reps to all board meetings and calls) and I realized I am the only person in late 20s in the board room surrounded by people who are old enough to be my parents.

This may or may not be expected at my level, but I would like to (i) add value wherever I could to the board (as small as they could be) (ii) start to build personal relationships with management and the board (iii) develop executive presence.

What appropriate things can I do to achieve these objectives without coming off as trespassing other directors territory/ being a "know-it-all" kid?
