KPMG/NACD Quarterly Audit Committee Webcast - The board as a strategic asset

Thursday September 29, 2016 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT
From Audit Committee Institute


Event Overview

“Board refreshment” continues to gain traction as investors and other stakeholders put board composition under the microscope, but is incremental director change over time sufficient to position the company for the future? In an increasingly complex and volatile environment, directors face a new set of challenges and demands that require new ways of thinking and a higher level of engagement. Boards—and nominating and governance committees in particular—are being challenged to increase their focus on continuous improvement and move beyond traditional approaches as scrutiny of board composition, succession, tenure, and diversity intensifies.

Join us for our next Quarterly Webcast as we explore how leading boards are moving beyond periodic refreshment and taking a more strategic approach to building a high-performing board. National Association of Corporate Directors President Peter Gleason and director Bill McCracken will discuss key findings and recommendations from the NACD’s 2016 Blue Ribbon Commission and KPMG’s recent global survey “Building a Great Board,” with a focus on building a board with the skills and insights to support the company’s long-term strategy, and the ability to adapt and retool over time as conditions and the company’s needs change.

This 60-minute webcast will also provide updates and insights on key financial reporting and legal/regulatory developments impacting audit committee and board oversight.
