“From developing strategy and overseeing risk to managing executive
compensation and planning talent succession—all while balancing shareholders’
expectations and regulators’ demands—a director’s list of responsibilities
seems endless.” said TK Kerstetter, chairman of Corporate Board Member. “Add
in emerging technologies that are changing the way companies do business along
with political and regulatory influences both domestically and
internationally, and you have a recipe for director overload. Our goal is to
help directors get their arms around the critical issues to better fulfill
their fiduciary duties to shareholders.”

In addition to the Boardroom Summit, attendees can take advantage of an
off-the-record Board Committee Peer Exchange program or a half-day
primer/refresher course on Monday, February 25.
