Advisory Council on Risk Oversight

Advisory Council on Risk Oversight

NACD created the Advisory Council on Risk Oversight in 2012 to support a sustainable, profitable, and thriving corporate America. 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.

Participation
 

Confidential
Meetings and teleconferences are conducted under a modified version of the Chatham House Rule to maintain an environment for candid dialogue. No outside media is present at advisory council meetings. All delegates participate on their own behalf.

Cost
There is no cost associated with council participation other than travel expenses.

Commitment
The conversation is ongoing, punctuated by semi-annual meetings, typically from 8:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., in Washington, D.C. or New York City. Debrief conference calls for non-attending delegates follow each in-person meeting.
