Friday, October 26, 2012
7:30am to 10:00am
Kreischer Miller, Horsham

The most successful companies effectively balance the day-to-day demands of running a business with the need to think strategically.  Utilizing a Board of Directors is a proven way to assist in accomplishing this objective. Gaining outside perspective on issues can help a business owner make grounded, forward-thinking decisions.  While many people tend to think Boards of Directors are the realm of public companies, they can provide a wealth of value for private companies as well.

This interactive, engaging, and practical seminar had the following panel discussions:

  • The role of a Board of Directors in a private company and the value it can provide to owners and executives
  • How to structure the Board and align it to your company’s needs
  • What to look for in a qualified Board member
  • Board member responsibilities and compensation
