Agenda

With a volatile stock market and important initiatives by the U.S. government, there are significant regulatory and enforcement challenges that Directors must address.  The Distinguished Speakers will discuss the SEC’s current views regarding enforcement and disclosure issues.  Topics will include conducting internal corporate investigations; dealing with whistleblowers; insider trading; the role of the audit committee; voluntary disclosures to regulators; and interfacing with the government when protecting against the personal liability of Directors & Officers.  The Distinguished Speakers will also analyze “best practices” in corporate governance that should be adopted by companies and their Boards to address these key issues.

The Directors Roundtable Institute is a not-for-profit which organizes worldwide programming for Directors and their advisors.
