Duration: 45 minutes
The role of corporate secretary has been evolving in recent years as shareholder engagement has become a greater focus and boards have taken on oversight of new ESG-related issues.
In addition to those already increasing burdens, the Covid-19 pandemic has required corporate secretaries and their governance colleagues to adapt to virtual AGMs and board meetings, a growing focus on human capital management and new thinking around crisis management, among other challenges.
In this webinar, our panel of experts will provide insight into the changing role of the corporate secretary in handling both traditional and recent responsibilities as we look to a new year.
Topics for discussion will include:
- How do remote board meetings affect work such as scheduling, taking minutes and ensuring board members are provided with the right information?
- What are the most effective uses and limits of technology in managing board assessments and evaluating board composition?
- The US Department of Justice is pressing for companies’ compliance programs to be more data-driven. How does this affect corporate secretaries’ work with compliance and how they brief the board?
