About the Council

Companies need to deliver superior performance against a backdrop of economic, geopolitical, regulatory, technological, and market change. Directors in leadership positions guide their boards and partner with management as never before.

Our four Councils serve independent board chairs/LIDs, and chairs of governance, compensation/talent, and audit/risk/finance committees. Each Council is limited to 30 members.

Through discussions with peers and experts, Members gain unique insights to enhance their board’s effectiveness as a strategic partner in addressing company priorities.
