Role, Responsibilities, and Process for Nominating / Governance Committee
One of the major oversight committees of a company’s board of directors is the Nominating / Governance Committee. The committee’s role of managing board composition and governance is more important today than it ever has been. In addition, the Nom / Gov committee’s responsibilities are increasing as investors, regulators and other stakeholders raise their expectations.
This training will focus on the Nominating / Governance Committee’s key role, responsibilities and oversight of various areas including board recruitment, composition, evaluation, and oversight of the various board committees composition and lead directors. We will have director and legal experts to help understand the hard core governance issues facing boards today. We will also cover emerging governance issues and trends such as investor interactions and Environmental Social and Governance (ESG), as well as practical and actionable insights, perspectives and ideas to help maximize performance and outcomes.
In this program we cover the primary elements a director needs to know to be an effective Nominating / Governance Committee Member or Chair.
Expect an Intense Exploration of Nominating / Governance Committee Work Along with Time to Interact with Other Top-Tier Board Candidates and Public Company Board Faculty. There will be a 1-to-1 ratio of faculty to attendees.
Landing Board Seats is a concise webinar that provides a strategic view of securing or selecting board positions, as well as specific tactical information to move yourself forward and help you navigate the unwritten rules of board search. If you are asking yourself the “What’s” “How’s” and “When’s” of your board search then this information will be crucial.
The webinar covers topics such as identifying targets, crafting a value proposition, attracting and interacting with recruiters, preparing board marketing materials, leveraging social media, and building board credentials. In addition, the webinar will cover the later stages of the board search including interview strategies, questions, and creating a tailored skills matrix. All of these steps are distinctly different for a board search than for an executive search.
Take advantage of every edge to position yourself to land one of the only 26,000 Outside Director Board Seats in the US. This webinar will set you on a path, better prepared.

Role, Responsibilities, and Process for the Compensation Committee
As executive compensation has steadily increased since the early 1990s, so has scrutiny of pay and the number of compensation standards intended to contain the growth of pay. Dodd-Frank’s imposition of Say-on-Pay in 2011 has been followed up with a host of disclosure rules culminating in the “Pay-vs-performance” requirement implemented in 2022 and the enhanced ‘Clawback’ rule in 2023. The spotlight on Compensation Committees has not dimmed. Regulations and policies are proliferating from both the formal regulators at the SEC and the proxy advisory firms that serve as informal regulators of corporate governance. The growing focus on ESG has further expanded the issues considered by Compensation Committees. Through all these changes, those Committees have had to retain their focus on the principal function of the Board, which is to support value creation at the companies they oversee.
In this program we cover everything a director needs to know to be an effective Compensation Committee Member or Chair, including:
Beyond the basics, will cover key topics such as:
Expect an intense exploration of Compensation Committee Details along with time to interact with other top-tier Board candidates, public company Board faculty, and Compensation/Governance expert faculty.
