About This Meeting

Over the last several years, more ESOP companies have decided to move to more formal boards. Many have outside members, but even those with all insiders are often taking a more active role. This Webinar looks at what makes an effective board. Should there be outside directors? What should their qualifications and compensation be? Should there be non-management employees on the board? Should board members be fiduciaries? Should plan advisors be on the board? What should board duties be and what makes boards most productive?
