CSSA: Ten Practical Guidelines to Improving Board Communication

Ten Practical Guidelines to Improving Board Communication

3 May 2016

Dear Colleague

Chartered Secretaries Southern Africa (CSSA) is proud to announce the launch of a new paper titled “Ten Practical Guidelines to Improving Board Communication” by the Corporate Secretaries International Association (CSIA). CSSA is a founding member of CSIA, which has over 70 000 company secretaries and governance professionals worldwide. Ensuring effective board communication has always been a critical aspect of the company secretary’s role. In the face of new and ever-increasing liability for directors and the incorporation of the business judgment rule in many jurisdictions has brought this duty more to the fore than ever.

CSIA’s new paper provides useful and practical advice for company secretaries and governance professionals to balance the imperatives of management and the board to improve the quality of discussions and the decision making process.

The paper was launched in London on 28 April 2016 by CSIA at a webinar co-hosted by Diligent Corporation, sponsors of the paper and chaired by Carina Wessels, Past President of CSIA and CSSA. Joining Carina on the panel was Charlie Horrell, Managing Director, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Diligent Corporation and Meena Heath, Global Ambassador, Global Leaders in Law, who fielded incisive questions submitted by the 200-plus attendees. CSSA continues to play a leading role in the international community of company secretaries and governance professionals.

A press release describing the launch; the full paper on “Ten Practical Guidelines to Improving Board Communication” and the webinar can be accessed on this link www.csiaorg.com
