While expanding outreach to the director community throughout the state, the NACD Florida Chapter is focused on providing unparalleled programming in the 2018-2019 season, centered on dynamic presentations and peer interaction on the most current and challenging topics facing directors and their boards.
Please join us for a fireside chat with Tom James, chairman emeritus, and Paul Reilly, chairman and CEO, as they describe how important effective corporate governance and community involvement have been in the long-term success of Raymond James Financial. In addition to describing these important ESG principles, they will cover how these values are woven into the culture of the organization and brought to life in the communities where the firm operates. The venue for this program - The James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art - is a living example of the importance of community involvement to the leaders of Raymond James Financial. You will be invited to tour the museum following the presentation.
Few companies today are immune from shareholder activism, and the pace of new campaigns continues to accelerate. While front-page headlines highlight large company activist campaigns, smaller-cap companies are the primary target of activist investors. What trends are emerging in public activism? Besides board composition, what are the focus areas for campaigns? This program includes key learnings and case-study sharing from an experienced team of board directors with direct involvement in activist campaigns. Don't miss this program for directors who want to be prepared for a high-probability encounter with activist shareholders.
