The work of a corporate board has become more intensive, requiring a broader skill set and knowledge of areas not covered in depth by the traditional 20th century board. Professor Richard LeBlanc has compiled The Handbook of Board Governance, which takes deep dives into what the board of the future will need to understand about its role in the oversight of key areas, including succession, risk, compensation, information technology and sustainability.

Learn about the board’s most important responsibilities; board composition, effectiveness and dynamics; and the governance of different forms of corporations, including nonprofit, startup, private, small cap, family and developing companies.

Who should attend: Current and prospective board members of public and private companies, nonprofit organizations, family businesses, and state-owned enterprises; CEOs and other C-suite executives and management who report to boards; and governance professionals who advise and provide independent oversight functions to boards.
