When you come to NACD’s annual Board Leadership Conference, you know you’ll hear hard-hitting insights, participate in engaging sessions, and network with leading boardroom experts and peers. But this year, the conference has been designed to offer more opportunities than ever for you to connect face-to-face with today’s big thinkers and agenda-setters.
In addition to our hallmark networking-packed power breakfasts, keynote luncheons, cocktail receptions, dinners, and NACD Fellowship and NACD Chapter gatherings, the 2014 agenda features longer breaks, giving you more time between each session to connect with your fellow attendees. We’ve also added peer-exchange roundtables and learning track options, making it even easier for you to meet directors who serve similar industries, organizations, and committees—and share your boardroom concerns.
Our enhanced Social Media Lab, where social media-savvy experts will guide you through the latest technologies, tools, and trends, and Partner Showcase will include interactive displays, book signings, and plenty of space to meet your new colleagues.
In tandem with this year’s conference theme—Beyond Borders—the NACD Global Village has been designed to bring NACD members and international business leaders together to discuss emerging trends and opportunities in the global business arena.
Once you are onsite, be sure to check out our improved conference mobile application, NACD BLC Mobile, featuring in-app messaging so you can readily correspond with fellow attendees, exchange contact information, set up meetings, and more. You’ll also be able to broadcast your personal conference insights and share information from NACD’s social media sites to your own social networks.
The conference takes place Oct. 12-14 at the Gaylord National Resort in National Harbor, Maryland—just minutes from downtown Washington, D.C.
