National Association of Corporate Directors
Founded in 1977, the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) is a national nonprofit membership organization dedicated exclusively to serving the corporate governance needs of corporate boards and individual board members. NACD's 17,500 members and customers represent companies ranging from Fortune 100 public companies to small, over-the-counter, closely held and private firms.
NACD and its Arizona Chapter promote high professional board standards, create forums for peer interaction, enhance director effectiveness, communicate and monitor the policy interests of directors, conduct benchmarking research and educate boards and directors concerning traditional and cutting-edge issues.
NACD accepts both individual and full board membership. Associate membership is available to professional services organizations -- such as legal practices, audit firms and compensation consultants -- that provide essential board guidance and advisory services.
Membership benefits include continuing director education, benchmarking research in numerous board and committee practices, thought leadership publications, practical handbooks for committees and boards, 24/7 ExpresSource information hotline, director search services, and other key resources for directors and boards.
With almost three decades of corporate governance research and experience to draw from, NACD provides a seasoned, authoritative voice on corporate governance policy and practice. NACD also is a vital forum for peer interaction and exchange of best board practices.
The Arizona Chapter meetings provide timely topics and interactive sessions with knowledgeable leaders from the business community to help make you an active, valuable contributor to your board. If you sit on a board, advise a board, work with a board or are a candidate to join a board, here is an opportunity to enhance your skills.
