The Corporate Governance Council was founded in Europe in recognition of the growing importance attached by investors to the effectiveness of the corporate board. It has strong connections to the Global Corporate Governance Research Center, based in New York. The Council is dedicated to executives with governance interest and responsibility, based in Europe, including corporate secretaries, legal counsel, and institutional investors responsible for corporate governance policiesers say
“I find that the council meetings provide me with a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and views with corporate representatives in an environment which encourages and nurtures frank, confidential and constructive dialogue.”
“The key benefits include: how valuable the council is in terms of peer to peer dialogue on key governance issues, as well as the ability to interact with investors in small and off-the-record settings. Meeting with investors in this kind of group setting is quite unique and usually allows for an efficient yet thoughtful dialogue on a high level, beyond the specifics of one's own corporate situation. This is a very special form of engagement.”
Who should join?
Members will be Corporate Secretaries and Legal or General Counsel.
