NACD Board Leadership Conference NACD Chapter System

Boise I Board Members as Strategic Assets

March 8, 2017
Boise, ID



Is your board structured to function as a strategic asset in driving organizational profitability, growth and shareholder value?  Aligning boardroom talent with the company’s strategy is an area of increased focus for those in an oversight role.   

Directors of public, private, and non-profit boards face several complex challenges: managing board composition including gender, age, and the need for diverse, new and varying viewpoints; onboarding directors with specific skills or subject matter expertise; CEO/executive/board succession planning, and more.

Join corporate executive, board director and governance expert Phyllis Campbell in this director-only, peer-to peer, small luncheon format.  Listen, learn and discuss how directors are navigating these issues; and the current tools, trends and approaches being employed in today’s boardroom.

Attendees will receive the recently published NACD Blue Ribbon Commission report on Building the Strategic Asset Board.   Luncheon limited to 20 director attendees.
