Tuesday, December 3, 2019
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Eastern 


The role of the Board Secretary is far more important than just that of company scrivener and custodian of records. It represents an increasingly critical role in our changing industry involving corporate governance, corporate compliance, and director liability. That role also includes communication with directors and management, administration of corporate governance, oversight that policies and procedures are appropriately reviewed, and documentation of training and discussion of compliance issues. You are the provider of records that will be scrutinized by regulatory agencies. So what are the “do’s” and “don’ts” of this important job? And what tips might make the job easier? Join us for this informative session to find out!

Topics Covered:

  • General and specific responsibilities of the Board secretary
  • Ensuring board oversight of your institution’s risk management is appropriately documented
  • List of annual policies, officer designations, and other items that need to go to the board
  • Documenting various methods of board training
  • Establishing the agendas and distributing the board package
  • Crafting the minutes and supporting documentation, including corrections
  • E-package delivery – including privacy and IT issues and sample procedures
  • Record-retention requirements
