What is the role of the public company board? How do different market stakeholders view it?

Join our panel of corporate and legal experts as they share their reactions to the Governance Center's two-year-long study on the subject. Discover how various market players—including investors, academics, Delaware attorneys, and sitting directors—view what the job of the corporate board is and what it should be.

Join our experts as they share their perspectives on:

  • How the board should interact with management;
  • How the board should communicate with shareholders;
  • When the board should take action (and when it shouldn’t); and
  • What skills you need on a board to make it effective.

Who Should Attend: Current and prospective board members of public and private companies; CEOs and other C-suite executives; general counsel; corporate secretaries; corporate attorneys; investors; corporate governance professionals
