VIRTUAL SALON: ‘The Nom/Gov Committee: The On-ramp, Rails, and Off-ramp for Board Members’

August 21 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am PDT

The Nominating and Governance (Nom/Gov) Committee sets the foundation for a board’s overarching success as a steward for the business. The Committee is tasked with the critical responsibility of determining who – and what skills and expertise – is necessary for board composition. The Committee must then recruit and on-board new members (the “on-ramp”), determine guidelines for superior corporate governance (the “rails”), and decide when board directors should exit (the “off-ramp”).


Gain a deeper understanding of the Nom/Gov Committee. In this Virtual Salon, experienced board director and Athena Pioneer Beatriz Infante will take you behind the scenes of a Nom/Gov Committee. She’ll give you an insider’s view of the processes and discussions that lead to board composition and structure, a hot topic today as boards increasingly seek diverse constructs.
