Overview

Excellence in Corporate Governance is an environment where the company has the people, resources, processes and culture to enable a thoughtful, proactive focus on strategy, stakeholders, operations and risk and thus maximize the opportunity for successful results for all stakeholder groups. Excellence in Corporate Governance is the combined responsibility of the owners, managers and board of the company.

Purpose. Value creation for C-Suite executives and board members of public and private companies and nonprofit organizations provided through thought leadership and connecting people.

The Institute does this through:

  • Educational and Professional Certificate programs
  • A focus on future trends and board dynamics
  • A focus on public and private company governance as well as nonprofit board education
  • Sharing best practices
  • Networking
  • Board referrals and volunteer opportunities
  • Research

Corporate Sponsors

Corporate sponsors provide important benefits because their representatives to IECG typically have strong ties to corporate directors, senior management, and institutional investors. They assist IECG in identifying and recruiting speakers and panelists, provide guidance on the effectiveness of planned programs and research, and suggest new activities for IECG.

Institutional Advisers

Institutional advisers provide IECG guidance in the national/global arena of corporate governance. This group alerts IECG to impending changes and events broadly affecting corporate governance that should be incorporated into research and programs. Institutional advisers also work with strategic partners and corporate sponsors by providing another dimension of research and program review. In addition, institutional advisers provide speakers and access to other groups that can assist IECG in achieving its mission.
