    Classroom Political Speech & Governance

    With our country in a period of political polarization not seen perhaps since the years of the Vietnam War, the utterances of a senior executive as well as his/her participation on a politically sensitive advisory board or other activity, which may formerly have been fairly innocuous, can take on an outsized importance and have potentially serious consequences for a company’s brand, relationships with customers, vendors and employees, and its enterprise value. In addition, the erstwhile noncontroversial policies of a company about how to conduct its business may touch upon “litmus test” issues that can be political landmines. How can boards deal proactively with these sensitive issues, and what principles should guide them? How do company codes of ethics, whistleblower hotlines, and other tools of management and governance relate to these issues? Join our panel of experts as we explore an extremely topical – and complicated! – issue.

    Classroom Board Special Committees & Investigations

    With the onset of more public investigations, companies are increasingly choosing to undertake proactive internal investigations to uncover any corporate wrongdoing before it is leaked to the shareholders, media and / or general public. Who should serve on these investigative committees? What are best practices in this growing trend, and how can a company ensure that all parties are investigated fairly? How much involvement should in-house counsel have? What kind of legal counsel should the investigative committee acquire? And most importantly: How much authority should the independent committee have? Join NACD Philadelphia Chapter in Wilmington as we hear from area experts and enjoy Delaware regional networking.

    Classroom The General Counsel in the Boardroom

    In recent years since the 2008 financial crisis, the legal environment of corporations has changed significantly, namely with regard to increased regulation, technology advances, globalization and more. Increasingly, General Counsel has a seat at the governance table, to avoid corporate legal mistakes. Determining General Counsel’s level of independence, reporting structure, resources and remuneration are as important to their function as the decisions it makes. Join NACD Philadelphia as we discuss the benefits, best practices and procedures for including General Counsel in the boardroom.
