NACD Governance Outlook: Projections on Emerging Board Matters

The National Association of Corporate Directors has published its 2018 Governance Outlook and made it available for downloading at no charge.

The report provides perspective on the trends, issues, and risks that will command the board’s attention this year.

“Perhaps the biggest challenge for directors right now is deciding where to focus their attention,” the NACD says on its website. “Both risks and opportunities are proliferating at a bewildering pace. How can boards and directors make the most of their limited time?”

The report includes:

  • a summary of directors’ priorities from the 2017–2018 NACD Public Company Governance Survey;
  • an assessment of the future of risk management from Grant Thornton LLP;
  • a look at the forces driving change in board composition and succession;
  • an alert to an often-overlooked liability risk: failing to reveal pertinent information;
  • new trends in D&O exposures; and
  • insight into workforce disruption, cyber-risk reduction, and other risks.
