Duties of the Board Secretary: Fundamentals, Best Practices & E-Package Delivery
Date: April 18, 2013
Time: 2:00 PM- 3:30 PM CST
In a dynamic industry involving corporate governance, compliance, and director liability, the role of board secretary is more than critical. Examiners (and potentially legal counsel) will scrutinize recordkeeping, the board secretary’s communication with directors/management, and the administration of corporate governance. What are the dos and don’ts of this important role? How can the board secretary be more effective? This session will provide the answers to these questions and more.
In addition, more and more board packages are “delivered” electronically via iPads and other tablets. What steps can be taken to mitigate risk (e.g., security, privacy, etc.)?
> Communication with directors and management, before and after the meeting
> Coverage of board and committee meetings – how your role changes
> “Crafting” the minutes and supporting documentation
> Record-retention requirements
> Obtaining and maintaining annual documentation requirements (e.g., insider records, board training schedules, etc.)
> TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT
- Calendar of annual policies and items that need to go to the board
- Best-practices checklist for audit committees
- Electronic media board package considerations and sample procedures
