Our multi-year Governance Series programs bring together directors, faculty who are subject matter experts, and peer directors for a rich learning experience. Our faculty are carefully selected for their ability to provide fresh information, proven approaches, and strategic thinking in their areas of expertise. They understand our audiences and connect with them in ways that facilitate director learning and application of the material.
