Start: 3:00 pm
End: 4:30 pm
Event Days: 04/18/2013 - 04/18/2013

In a dynamic industry involving corporate governance, compliance and director liability, the role of board secretary is more than critical. Examiners (and potentially legal counsel) will scrutinize recordkeeping, the board secretary's communication with directors/management and the administration of corporate governance. What are the dos and don'ts of this important role? How can the board secretary be more effective? And now that more and more board packages are "delivered" electronically via iPads and other tablets, what steps can be taken to mitigate security risk? This session will provide the answers.

  • Communication with directors and management before and after the meeting
