Event description

Description

The panel will focus on the role of Corporate Directors through the life cycle of a director. The process starts with a Board deciding to refresh the Board by recruiting a new director. Once the new director is recruited to join a board, the director goes through “onboarding,” joining one or more committees, participating in Board and committee meetings and phone calls to carry out their responsibilities to oversee management, the company's strategy, succession plans and key decisions. Ultimately, the lifecycle ends with the director stepping down from the board, which can occur for a variety of reasons. In discussing the process and issues that directors must consider along every step of this journey, the panelists will provide insight into questions about what corporate boards actually do.

The panelists all have deep expertise in the subject based on their experiences on multiple corporate boards as well as advising boards. The program should be of interest to students of business as well as corporate law.
