With the ever-increasing emphasis on corporate governance, boards of public companies, public interest entities and regulated entities are experiencing awareness and greater pressure to become active and involved with their fiduciary responsibilities and exhibit a sound governance culture. Not only are companies concerned with putting appropriate mechanisms in place, but boards must adopt legislative changes, new frameworks, best practices and new attitudes about their decision-making processes and new ways of fulfilling their obligations.
