Invitation-Only Event: For more information, contact Matt Bradley at mbradley@foley.com. Our 17th 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.

We will recognize deserving boards in the categories of public, private and non-profit.
