In a dynamic industry involving corporate governance, compliance, and director liability, the role of the board secretary is integral to efficient board meetings. The minutes the secretary scribes are a key part of documenting discussions and decisions. Examiners (and potentially legal counsel) will scrutinize recordkeeping, the secretary’s communication with directors/management, and the administration of corporate governance. What are the dos and don’ts of this important role? How can the board secretary be more effective? What constitutes complete recordation? What if corrections are needed for past meetings? This webinar will provide the answers to these and other questions, best practices, and sample language.
