2013 Directors Certification Update
October 15, 2013 in Newport Beach & October 17, 2013 in Sacramento

Keep your certification current by attending our annual update session!

Over the past three years, the Dodd Frank Act has increased the Board’s responsibility for overseeing management decisions and protecting shareholder value. An ambitious agenda of government regulation is now being implemented. Directors must be fully prepared for the challenges the future holds. Good corporate governance is more important than ever to address new requirements and responsibilities..

While this full-day update is designed for directors that hold their certification, all directors will benefit from the critical information offered in this program. This year’s session will spend a good deal of time on the new regulatory reform legislations and what it means for directors. Our speakers will discuss what makes an effective board as well as what regulators, examiners and shareholders expect of directors.


The session will run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., with breakfast and registration beginning at 8:00 a.m. and lunch at noon. Topics will include:
