NACD Members Only Event


EVENT IS AT CAPACITY! Please contact Judy Ferril, Chapter Administrator, for information.


New directors face a steep learning curve in getting up to speed on issues relating to the company and its board culture. The pressure to climb quickly, to be able to contribute meaningfully to the work of the board and its committees, can be intense and hinges on the quality of a board's onboarding process. Effective onboarding practices will be the topic of our December 14, 2016 round-table discussion.


At the meeting, cohosted by Mary Daugherty and Joe Jasper, directors will share their experiences, lessons learned, and best practices from their current and previous board assignments. Please join us for what will certainly be a lively and informative discussion on this topic.
