Please join the Rock Center and SVDX to hear a panel of experts discuss the role of the board in managing through conflict and conflicts of interest. The session will cover:
- What makes a board member “independent” under applicable legal norms to serve on the board, and to serve on board committees?
- When do conflicts of interest commonly arise and how do they affect fiduciary duties?
- How do conflicts of interest come into play in M&A transactions and through service on other companies’ boards?
- How can a director comply with his or her fiduciary duties?
- What are some best practices to address conflicts?
The panelists will also discuss:
- How should a board handle a runaway management team, inexperience, strategic direction differences, or deceit?
- How can boards remove directors who are ineffective or sources of conflict?
- What is the right cause of action when directors don’t work out?
