July 9, 2012 – Atlanta, GA – Enterprise risk management (ERM) expert and speaker Gary W. Patterson, FiscalDoctor®, will attend the NACD Board Leadership Conference hosted by the National Association of Corporate Directors focused on three main areas – corporate governance, strategy and risk and board of directors' leadership.
It's the opportunity to hear from the true experts in corporate governance—directors like you who have developed leading practices in order to meet real boardroom challenges. It's session after information-packed session developed by directors, for directors.
Who will be there?
• Corporate directors, key committee chairs and board chairs
• Corporate officers and C-suite executives
• Shareholders, stakeholders, regulators and legislators
Patterson works with leaders to uncover blind spots to make better business decisions and dramatically accelerate correct fiscal leadership decisions. This helps leaders gain control of their financial destinies and capitalize on hidden high return opportunities, while limiting their exposure to risk. Patterson, a Big 4 CPA with a MBA degree from Stanford University, speaks regularly on topics such as corporate governance, risk management, strategic contingency planning, achieving corporate financial goals, and building long-term wealth.
Founded in 1977, NACD is a national non-profit membership organization dedicated exclusively to serving the corporate governance needs of corporate boards and individual board members. NACD's 17,500 members and customers represent companies ranging from Fortune 100 public companies to small, over-the-counter, closely held, and private firms. In October 1998 the Board of Directors first adopted governance guidelines to assist Directors in discharging their responsibilities and ensuring our commitment to the highest standards of corporate conduct and compliance. These guidelines are reviewed annually by the Governance Committee, which recommends revisions for Board approval. The guidelines set forth the policies and procedures that the Board will implement in discharging its responsibilities. They cover a full range of areas, including mission, legal and ethical conduct, oversight of NACD activities (including NACD strategy), Board processes and performance, assessment of Board performance, selection and orientation of Directors, and oversight of the CEO and other senior managers.
