Equilar and Nasdaq are hosting a one-day program to help public company board members, general counsel, and corporate secretaries drive success in their organizations.
As investors’ emphasis on board transparency, accountability and independence intensifies, today’s boards face an on-going set of risks, governance decisions and strategic initiatives. At the Board Leadership Forum, the goal is to empower participants to build higher performing boards through improved processes, strengthened director evaluations and recruitment efforts, and more effective shareholder engagement.
Impacting positive change that extends beyond boardroom walls starts with aligning board composition to a company’s strategy, which requires boards to reassess director succession planning, recruitment and onboarding processes, as well as how to overcome potential barriers.
Additionally, with more stakeholder voices and shareholder rights, boards face a heightened level of public scrutiny. The best boards will evolve their risk oversight, capital allocation priorities and governance processes to be better positioned to oversee long-term value creation and avoid an activist’s knock at the door.
Join Equilar and Nasdaq on May 16 in Dallas to explore these issues and more through an interactive agenda that promises unique opportunities to network and exchange new ideas and solutions with other public company board members and executives.
Featured speakers include executives from Energy Future Holdings, Cedar Fair, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Flotek Industries, TopBuild, Uni-Pexel Inc. and View Inc., among others.
