NACD’s Initiative to Restore Public and Investor Confidence

Public and investor confidence has been eroded. The National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) believes that boards can and should play a major role in getting the United States economy back on track, restoring confidence by strengthening governance in a meaningful way — not depending on prescriptive rules and regulations.

The U.S. government, however, continues to seek solutions in the form of corporate intervention and prescriptive rulemaking.

Leading the Way: Directors Strengthening Corporate Governance is the NACD’s national initiative to restore public and investor confidence. It is the result of collaboration on the part of NACD, hundreds of corporate board directors, dozens of business leaders, shareholder groups and government leaders.

The collective participation by many boards in this initiative will demonstrate to the public, investors and government that boards are taking a lead role in our economic recovery. And it will help ensure that our leadership and expertise are considered as public policy decisions are made.

But we need your help. Join your fellow boards of directors by taking three simple steps to participate in this initiative.

“We believe corporate boards must lead the way in improving board performance and corporate oversight.”
