Boardroom leadership skills are developed over time, honed through years of experience and refined through ongoing learning. It is a continuous process, as corporate directors must respond to changing, often volatile, business realities, and the NACD fellowship program is a part of that process.
An NACD fellowship is bestowed on those directors who have gone the extra mile (and more) by completing a rigorous foundation course and elective curricula. The result is a select group of directors who have demonstrated their commitment to boardroom excellence and are prepared to implement leading corporate governance practices in the boardroom.
This week, NACD is pleased to announce a new group of 64 Fellows who achieved this significant credential in the second quarter of 2012. NACD offers two fellowship credentials: the NACD Board Leadership Fellowship for experienced directors and the NACD Governance Fellowship for new and aspiring directors.
