In-Boardroom Education Programs

Develop a Board that Continuously Delivers Value

NACD provides confidential, tailored, in-boardroom and virtual education and advisory briefings for directors and C-suite executives. Sessions can cover any number of customized topics facilitated by NACD faculty, who are sitting directors and subject-matter experts. Each program is unique—designed specifically for your board's inner workings and nuanced dynamics.


NACD's faculty comprises more than 40 sitting directors and subject-matter experts. Faculty members are matched to programs based on many factors, such as their boardroom experience, industry expertise, and the topics covered in the in-boardroom program. View a sampling of companies and organizations our faculty are currently serving or have in the past.


In-boardroom and virtual engagements begin with a planning call between the NACD team and designated client representatives to set expectations and goals for the program. The duration of the actual program varies, with sessions ranging from a two-hour board briefing to a full-day session or more, usually taking place at a board meeting or retreat.
