In order to garner a second straight honor, the blog needs some help from you, the reader. If you have the time, we would appreciate it if you would visit the LexisNexis Corporate & Securities Community and explain why you read the Governance Center blog.

As the blog continues to evolve and become more relevant in the corporate governance space, we at The Conference Board Governance Center continue to utilize more social media channels to get our message out to the community. This year we have started using Twitter to converse on a myriad of corporate governance topics as well as offer another way to deliver our blog posts, research and market our directors’ education programs. By the way, for those of you who don’t know our Twitter handle is @tcbcorpgov
If you are not an ardent user of Twitter, you can follow our tweets on the blog through a widget that lists the most recent ones.
The Governance Center is honored to once again be nominated by LexisNexis, which already includes our posts in their Corporate & Securities Community.
As part of the vetting process the Top Blogs campaign on the LexisNexis Corporate & Securities Community
will move ahead in several phases. They start by taking nominations during a comment period that started Oct. 9 and ends on Oct. 25. The group of initial nominees based on the 2010 Top Blogs campaign is listed here
LexisNexis will select the top 25 based on its review of the sites and comments from community members. After it announces the Top 25 Corporate and Securities Law Blog honorees, LexisNexis will ask its community to vote for the Top Corporate and Securities Law Blog of the Year.
For the second year in a row, the Governance Center Blog has been nominated by LexisNexis to its Top 25 Business Law Blogs of 2011, which are featured on its Corporate & Securities Community. Last year the blog, now in its second year, was actually named a winner in the competition.
