The 2017–2018 NACD Public Company Survey presents findings from our annual questionnaire that was in the field during the summer of 2017. This report’s takeaways are drawn from hundreds of public company responses received from corporate directors and executives, and are supplemented by data compiled by Main Data Group, a provider of executive compensation benchmarking and corporate governance data and analytics. This year’s survey offers great insight into how directors and boards view the next 12 months. Which major business trends do they expect will have the greatest impact on their companies? What are the areas where they hope to improve board performance next year? Which topics are the ones on which directors want to spend more time during board meetings?

This is an executive summary of the findings. The complete report is available exclusively to NACD members. To become an NACD member, please contact Matt Barone at Join@NACDonline.org.
