New expectations are being placed on boards in critical areas of governance, including disclosure, oversight of complex operational issues, risk management, board succession, audit committee oversight, executive compensation, and responsiveness to and communication with investors pressing different concerns. In addition, in years past the Dodd-Frank Act, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and other anti-bribery laws have put new requirements on companies and on boards. But with a new administration, what changes can boards expect to face? At this institute, leading corporate governance directors, government officials, corporate counsel and academics will share their perspectives on the fast-changing regulatory environment, the new competing pressures and expectations being placed on boards, and needed steps boards will want to consider.
WilmerHale Partner Lillian Brown will moderate the panel "Corporate Social Media: Maximizing Value and Minimizing Risk."
