NACD Board Leadership Conference NACD Chapter System

How to Strengthen Board Culture For Higher Performance

Minnesota Event Logo
May 6, 2015
Minneapolis, MN



The most valuable family business boards combine insiders and independent directors who operate as a team and as “thought partners” with the CEO. Getting and keeping this level of teamwork requires a strong board culture that brings out the best contributions of every member. Learn how every board member, family and non-family, can contribute to a board culture that builds a more valuable company. Tips and ideas from a panel of peers and from research for the new NACD Handbook series for family business directors.

Participants will receive a complimentary copy of the 2015 NACD Directors Handbook: "The Family Business Board Vol. 1" co-authored by Allen Bettis (a $50 value) and a copy of Cohesion and Profitability, a new global survey of the world’s largest family businesses by Ernst & Young.
