Board and Committee Evaluation Templates

In brief: Developed with the Report of the NACD Blue Ribbon Commission on Building the Strategic-Asset Board, this sample template is designed to obtain feedback from directors on the board’s overall performance. The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) requires its listed companies to disclose corporate governance guidelines, including board evaluations. NASDAQ-listed companies do not have similar requirements, though many still conduct board evaluations as a matter of good governance.
