Women on Boards: A 360 Degree Perspective
May. 9, 2018
Bethesda, MD


Gender diversity increases corporate bottom lines and enhances board effectiveness. Women fuel a huge amount of our economy and have clear insights into purchasing motivations and customer experiences that can drive business strategies and long-term company profitability. Yet, women struggle to land board positions. Why? Are qualified women hard to find? Are men being left out of the conversation? Join your fellow directors in an interactive conversation with one of the nation's most highly recognized business and governance women leaders, Linda Rabbitt, Chairman and CEO of rand* corporation. Jim Schleckser will serve as program moderator in helping spotlight the governance imperatives in this high-profile topic from a 360° perspective.

What Is SASB and Why Should You Care?
May. 8, 2018
Minneapolis, MN


What is SASB and Why Should You Care? Environmental, social, and governance matters all contribute to form an organization's sustainability reporting. This area of SEC disclosure and corporate reporting is increasing in interest and demand. Employees, supply chain partners, and investors are all interested in the additional color that this reporting provides. Join the NACD Minnesota Chapter as Mr. Hirth and our guest panel explore the following questions: What is the Sustainability Accounts Standard Board (SASB), how was it formed, and what are its mission and activities?

Why are institutional investors interested in and, in some cases, demanding these additional disclosures?

What does the SEC already require in terms of sustainability reporting? How are the SASB suggested disclosures developed by industry and what are they? What is the current state of sustainability reporting within and outside of Form 10-K? Why might you consider this reporting and activity to enhance the value of your organization?

How are non-public companies approaching sustainability and reporting, and what benefits are they seeing? What questions about sustainability should directors be asking in 2018?

The General Counsel in the Boardroom
May. 8, 2018
Philadelphia, PA


In recent years since the 2008 financial crisis, the legal environment of corporations has changed significantly, namely with regard to increased regulation, technology advances, globalization and more. Increasingly, General Counsel has a seat at the governance table, to avoid corporate legal mistakes. Determining General Counsel’s level of independence, reporting structure, resources and remuneration are as important to their function as the decisions it makes. Join NACD Philadelphia as we discuss the benefits, best practices and procedures for including General Counsel in the boardroom.

In war, mistakes in strategy or execution result in serious consequences for our nation and, all too often, unnecessary loss of life. In the boardroom, directors are charged with overseeing corporate strategy, risk and high-impact executive decision making. Failures of oversight in the boardroom aren’t paid for in human casualties, but they can result in huge shareholder value losses, lost opportunities, and irreparable damage to the corporate brand. Senior military leaders are exceptionally well trained to focus on strategy, oversee its execution, and guarantee mission success. And directors can gain valuable knowledge about board effectiveness by understanding what senior military leadership skills can be powerfully applied to the board room. Join us as General Norton A. Schwartz (USAF, Retired) unveils the similarities and secrets between military success and business success.
