Call Description

Join us for this timely education session where we will take a deep dive into the Nomination and Governance Committee – what it does, what has changed and why this is now the “in demand” board committee to serve and lead.

Dawn and Jim have several insights that we all can implement to improve our approach to this key board committee. Jim has also said he wants you all to have his email at the end of the call, if you are interested to discuss your profile for his companies!
