Invitation-Only Event: For more information, contact Tracey Konicek at tkonicek@foley.com. Our 15th annual National Directors Institute (NDI) Executive Exchange, a national forum where prominent corporate governance leaders will continue the in-depth, interactive peer group discussion that began with our first NDI in 2002.*

For more than a decade, Foley’s National Directors Institute has been the forum of choice for business leaders looking to explore the latest developments in the corporate finance and governance landscape. As you navigate the legal risks arising from increasing governmental regulation and reform and shareholder activism, count on NDI’s series of interactive programs to help keep you on target.

In conjunction with our 15th annual National Directors Institute, Foley invites you to our fourth annual Board of the Year award program. Awards will be given to a private and a public company board and will be announced during the NDI Reception and Dinner, which will be held on November 9, from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at the Westin Chicago River North.
