“We are proud to join forces with NASDAQ OMX and NYSE Euronext in consolidating a source of information that we believe our respective members will find of great value when facing decisions regarding their corporate governance structure and fiduciary responsibilities,” Tonello said.
The Conference Board, NASDAQ OMX and NYSE Euronext recently announced a research collaboration to examine the state of corporate governance practices among publicly listed corporations in the United States.
The collaboration focuses on the development and dissemination of information regarding the structure, composition and functions of the board of directors. As part of the collaboration, The Conference Board is conducting an online survey of general counsel members, corporate secretaries and corporate government specialists at publicly listed U.S. companies.
