NYU School of Law’s Program on Corporate Compliance and Enforcement Joins NACD Educational Network


Partners Compliance Press Releases

WASHINGTON, DC, and NEW YORK (August 17, 2023) — The National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), the authority on boardroom practices representing more than 23,000 corporate board members, today announced that the Program on Corporate Compliance and Enforcement (PCCE) at the New York University (NYU) School of Law has joined the NACD Education Network, an alliance of top-tier academic institutions offering reciprocal credit for directors who are NACD Directorship Certified®.

The NACD Education Network was formed in 2020 to better prepare board directors for the rigors of the increasingly complex and challenging work of directorship. PCCE joins a growing alliance that now extends to eight educational institutions.

Building on NACD Directorship Certification®, which puts directors on the leading edge of governance issues and demonstrates their commitment to the profession of directorship, the NACD Education Network enables NACD Directorship Certified individuals to earn recertification credits toward their certification through participation in leading director programs provided by world-class universities across the country and around the world. NACD Directorship Certification requires recertification every two years through 32 hours of continuous learning at recognized programs.

“We are thrilled to add the Program on Corporate Compliance and Enforcement at the NYU
School of Law to our growing NACD Education Network,” said Peter R. Gleason, NACD
president and CEO. “Expanding the network of world-class executive education providers to pair
with NACD's cutting-edge education programming and certification will help directors succeed
as they face the most challenging times of their directorships.”

PCCE’s next Directors’ Academy will take place at the NYU School of Law (and by Zoom) on September 21 and 22, 2023, and will qualify for 14 hours of recertification credits for directors maintaining their NACD Directorship Certification. The agenda is available here. 

“Each year, PCCE’s annual Directors’ Academy provides public company directors with expert guidance on corporate governance, shareholder activism, enterprise and legal risk management, cybersecurity, AI, and governance of environmental risks, among other topics,” said PCCE Faculty Director and Norma Z. Paige Professor of Law Jennifer Arlen. “PCCE is delighted to be recognized by NACD and to join NACD’s Education Network, helping NACD accomplish its goal of enhancing directors’ knowledge, skills, and abilities, enabling them to discharge their duties as effectively as possible,” continued Arlen.
