The role of independent directors continues to shift as the impact of increased regulations, public scrutiny, technology, and communications challenge a board's oversight responsibilities. Similarly, as a generational shift takes place across the board landscape, different experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives will undoubtedly alter the boardroom conversation.
Join us to hear insights from NACD leadership: President and CEO, Peter Gleason, and NACD board member, Cari Dominguez. These leaders will share their thoughts around the landscape of board leadership in 2019-2020 as we kickoff the program season on Sept 5th. They will cover topics of leadership, governance, and critical skills, and also share news of the latest research and new tools and resources available to NACD members.
