Sponsored by Ernst & Young and other leading authorities, this symposium will focus on the pressures confronting board members, and the corporations they direct, as they increase in both scope and severity. Directors need to increase their knowledge base as never before — incorporating advanced financial expertise, proficiency of the risks facing their firms, regulatory and governance concerns with the always important people issues. As importantly, directors must increase their ability to manage their time, gain new expertise in different and developing areas and maintain ethical and procedural standards. This daylong program will help corporate board members obtain perspective that will enable them to overcome the hurdles they face on a day-to-day basis, improve their performance and meet the responsibilities of their expanding role.
