The Conference Board Governance Center continues its efforts to enhance our prominence in the corporate governance space, which is why I’m proud to announce that The Conference Board will be the new home studio for the Inside America’s Boardrooms webcast series.
If you are unfamiliar with the series, Inside America’s Boardrooms is a weekly web show, hosted by TK Kerstetter, that features board members and governance experts with varying perspectives and board committee experience. The knowledge level is designed for current and experienced board members, executives, proxy advisors, and governance professionals. Take a look at the latest episode, in which TK and I discuss the pros and cons of virtual shareholder meetings. Going forward, I will be guest hosting certain shows and appearing more regularly to discuss some of the more controversial issues in corporate governance. We will be posting the weekly episodes on our Governance Center webpage.
In this newsletter, I also want to highlight our latest installment of the Job of the Corporate Director series with findings of Corporate Secretaries’ perspectives on the corporate director’s job description, as well as the Key Insights from The Conference Board Cybersecurity Conference that was held on January 18-19. The findings in these reports may surprise you.
And as always: feel free to share this newsletter with any colleague in your company who may benefit from it.
