Webinar: Board Secretary Training: Documenting Board Training, Minutes, Corrections & More
Thursday, April 09, 2020, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

The board secretary’s role is vital! When was the last time your board secretary attended a training? Is he/she up to date on the dos and don’ts? Does the board understand the secretary’s responsibilities? Time for a training tune up?


  • Define the board secretary’s responsibilities
  • Use checklists to track board review of corporate documents, policies, and reports
  • Establish meeting agendas and distribute the board package efficiently
  • Craft minutes and supporting documentation to serve as the official corporate record
  • Explain benefits and compliance considerations of electronic board package delivery


A board secretary is so much more than a scribe and meeting planner. This crucial role involves communication with directors and management, corporate governance administration, oversight of policy and procedure review, maintaining training documentation, compliance issues, and managing relationships between shareholders, directors, and management. This program will detail the board secretary’s responsibilities, teach best practices, cover the dos and don’ts, and provide sample policy and tools.


This informative session is designed for board secretaries, senior management, and directors.
