Join your peers and raise the bar on your board’s performance.

Since 2004, the Boardroom Summit has been one of the most well-regarded educational and networking events for public company boards. Exclusive to public company directors and executives working closely with the board, this event promises a unique environment for participants to collaborate with peers who have walked in their shoes—and this year we are excited to bring the event to the west coast!

From developing strategy and overseeing risk, to managing executive compensation and planning talent succession—all while balancing management’s, shareholders’ and customers’ expectations amidst a new level of pressure—a director’s list of responsibilities seems endless.

Strengthen Your Board Contributions

Directors must be more than just monitors of management in today’s fast-paced, complex economy. Gain advice from veteran directors and seasoned advisors to help you add more value to your boardroom discussions.

Learn from other exemplary board leaders

The Boardroom Summit is exclusive to public company board members and executives, which means you’ll be networking specifically with your peers–providing learning opportunities you won’t find at other events.

Exceed Shareholder Expectations

Boards face new pressures and demands from various stakeholder groups amid heightened expectations for societal engagement and corporate citizenship. Hear directly from investors to gain a better understanding of the new shareholder engagement and activist landscape.

Take advantage of unparalleled networking.

Let’s celebrate being back together! This year’s content-rich program will also feature fun networking experiences for you to spend time with fellow directors. Experience the beauty and sunshine of Phoenix with outdoor receptions, and join us early for golf or another social activity.
