Corporate Directors Forum: San Diego 1/22-24

Last chance to sign up for the Corporate Directors Forumthe major annual West Coast event for informed directors and for those who work with boards. See my coverage of 2010 and 2009 Forums.  The venue is excellent, coming close to a living room conversation with panelists and there are plenty of opportunities for face-to-face dialogue with a rather small select group of presenters and those in attendance.

The conference, being held Jan. 22-24, 2012 at the University of San Diego, is designed to encourage interaction between the nation’s leading corporate governance authorities. Take a look at the steering committee charter, executive committee and directors at large. They work to create a conference you won’t forget. According to Larry Stambaugh, conference program chairman:

The conference will provide an opportunity to network up close with leaders in corporate governance and discuss the wide range of issues critical to today’s executives. Whether you’re a director, someone building or running a business, a shareholder or an academic, the event will provide valuable insights to all who attend.

Keynote speakers will include:

  • Stephen I. Chazen, president and CEO, Occidental Petroleum Corp.
  • Robert Khuzami, director, Division of Enforcement, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
  • J. Travis Laster, vice chancellor, Delaware Court of Chancery
  • Nelson Peltz, CEO and founding partner, Trian Partners

Other corporate governance thought leaders participating include:

Bonnie Hill (The Home Depot, Yum! Brands), Laban Jackson (JP Morgan), Steve Rosenblum (Wachtell Lipton), Anne Sheehan (CalSTRS), Lydia Beebe (Chevron), David Hirshmann (U.S. Chamber of Commerce), Dan Holmes (Goldman Sachs), Robert Lumpkins (The Mosaic Co.), Lisa Lindsley (AFSCME), Brandon Rees (AFL-CIO), Gary Retelny (Institutional Shareholder Services), Margaret Foran (Prudential), Ann Yerger (Council of Institutional Investors) and many others.

Corporate Directors Forum was founded in 1991. Its purpose is to help directors be better directors through education and peer networking. CDF’s core beliefs are that boards are strategic assets of corporations, education makes better directors, better directors make better boards and better boards make better corporations.

I wouldn’t miss it. If you’d like to connect at the event, please e-mail James McRitchie.
