Event Overview

The Society for Corporate Governance brings together corporate secretaries, in-house and outside counsel, governance professionals, and service providers from public and private companies of all sizes. According to the Society, “At this year’s National Conference, we explore The Golden State of Governance. We have more than 30 programs to choose from — including over 2 dozen breakout sessions.
