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.
Recent research indicates that 77 percent of S&P 500 companies disclosed engagement with investors, with over 32 percent of respondents reporting director involvement. Why are investors engaging boards and what should board directors know, anticipate, and communicate through proxy statements? You will hear from experts from ISS, BlackRock, and Northern Trust, representing global institutions with trillions of dollars of shareholder assets, with insights on key issues for investors, investor engagements, and analytics on trends impacting corporate boards. This is a not-to-miss program to understand the evolving pace of change in the investor engagement/activism arena and hot topics for your board to consider.
Prepare for the upcoming 2019 proxy season, which will soon be upon us. Hear about changes from ISS and Glass Lewis, new regulatory and legislative initiatives, and how Boards are thinking about executive compensation and corporate governance from a panel of experts including Compensation Committee Chairs and technical experts.

This year's NACD Blue Ribbon Commission (BRC) is titled Adaptive Governance: Board Oversight of Disruptive Risks. Join your fellow directors to discuss the findings of the report and learn how other boards are dealing with today's uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environment. The volatility of global information networks, shifting business models, disruptive natural events and unpredictable global economics and geopolitics combined with fundamental transformative technology are causing boards to rethink how they govern and how decisions are made. As a result, directors need to assess, discuss, and oversee disruptive risks that could have a significant economic, operational, and/or reputational impact and provide guidance that helps our companies and organizations be better prepared to respond when the unforeseen does occur. Join directors from International Paper, Dunkin Brands and Pepperidge Farm for a lively discussion on real world stories regarding the content of the 2018 BRC and best practices on building board proficiency in adaptive governance and turning uncertainty into sustainable advantage.
