The regulators’ request for your next examination arrives – and board and committee minutes are at the top of their list. Are yours complete? Have policy approvals, loan approvals, discussions, motions, and training been appropriately documented?

The board secretary is integral to efficient board meetings. This session will review the secretary’s responsibilities and provide best practices to enhance corporate governance administration, from planning and establishing the agenda and delivering the board package, to transcribing meeting notes and documenting details in the official minutes. In this dynamic industry involving corporate governance, compliance, and director liability, the critical role of the board secretary cannot be overstated. What are the dos and don’ts of this important role? How can the board secretary be more effective? This session will provide the answers to these questions and more.
