NACD - National Association of Corporate Directors


NACD convenes four distinct Fortune 500 Advisory Councils for chairs of the following committees:

In support of a sustainable and profitable corporate America, the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) created the Advisory Council on Risk Oversight in 2012. Since then, this council has brought risk and audit committee chairs from Fortune 500 companies together with investors, regulators, and other stakeholders to explore ways to strengthen corporate governance in general and the work of the risk committee in particular.

PwC and Sidley Austin LLP collaborate with NACD in convening and leading the council.
