Governance is the most influential standing committee of the board of directors. The primary purpose of this committee is to recruit new board members and ensure that board members are prepared to carry out their responsibilities on the board. Additionally, the committee, among other things, is responsible for oversight of succession planning, executive compensation, orientation and continuing education of board members, and ensuring the board engages in annual board evaluations.
As with all the CBE questionnaires, evaluations, and training tools, CBE can simply convert your organization's existing materials to a more flexible and efficient governance platform or work with your governance professionals to design a new questionnaire closely tailored to the unique aspects of your business.
