Thank you to all those who were able to participate in our 2013 Directors forum. We had a thoughtful, diverse group of attendees and presenters. Sessions covered a variety of topics including cybersecurity, shareholder activism and board education. The program was capped off by our dynamic “Building The One Fund” panel, which featured Mayor Thomas Menino, One Fund administrator Kenneth Feinberg and members of the One Fund Board of Directors.
If you have suggestions for our 2014 event, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org – we would love to hear from you.
Presented in addition to our customary educational program, our “Building The One Fund” panel will feature the Board of Directors, including representatives of our clients John Hancock and Hill Holiday, Jack Connors, and the administrator of The One Fund. These key players will join the Honorable Mayor Thomas M. Menino, to discuss how The One Fund came together in a time of crisis and how highly successful the public/private partnership has been.

The Sixth Annual Goodwin Procter Directors Forum was a success again this year. Once again this year, we presented our engaging program in Silicon Valley and in Boston. The 2012 program focused on issues faced by directors of public companies, as well as companies planning to go public in the future. Through a combination of interactive sessions, panel discussions and a keynote address, the 2012 event included topics ranging from the role of the Board of Directors in the strategic planning process to questions the Board should be asking related to social media to key considerations when contemplating a dual-track IPO/sale strategy. Thank you for your participation and for helping to make this year’s events such a great success.
