Broadrooms was founded to provide executive women the tools they need to serve on boards. Gerri Elliott, Veteran BoardProspects member and the founder of Broadrooms, has championed diversity throughout a long career in corporate leadership and knows firsthand the challenge of finding information and best practices for serving on public boards ...

      $18M to Serve on a Board of Directors?  Stunning Director Compensation Figures in Equilar Report

      Equilar has released a new report Director Pay Trends, which contains several stunning figures pertaining to board compensation -- such as Regeneron Pharmaceuticals paying its board a total of $18.5M in compensation in 2015.  It is noteworthy that the three boards at the top of the list are classified (directors only face re-election every few years as opposed to annually).  Thankfully, for shareholders, the number of classified boards in the S&P 500 has dropped to 10.4% (down from 27.9% in 2012).  Read the Equilar Report HERE

      The Solution to Over-Boarding: SEC or Shareholder Action?

      "According to a new survey by BDO USA, LLP, one of the nation’s leading accounting and consulting organizations, three-quarters (74%) of public company board members are in favor of placing limits on the total number of boards on which a director may serve and they generally favor more stringent limitations than those supported by proxy advisory firms." I wrote about this topic in Forbes back in 2014: Overboarding Article.  I'm curious as to what our Members think about this topic.  What are too many boards at one time?  And who should be the one to take action -- the ...

    6. This Bill Could Allow Another Fraud Like Wells Fargo's

      This Bill Could Allow Another Fraud Like Wells Fargo's

      The Financial CHOICE Act, a bill that would essentially repeal key protections within the Dodd-Frank Act, was approved by the House Financial Services Committee on Sept. 13. While it’s unlikely the bill will ever become law, it is nevertheless a stunning example of Congress’ inability to understand the implications of failures in corporate governance.

    11. Lululemon's Mystery Board Member Resigns

      Interesting article in Fortune on the resignation of Lululemon board member Rhoda Pitcher:  Fortune article.  Lululemon could have helped itself out by being much more up-front when questions arose in June regarding the credentials of Pitcher.  At the time, the company said that she was a valued member because her “considerable knowledge of our business gained from more than 10 years as a director of Lululemon makes her well suited to provide advice with respect to our strategic plans, culture and marketing programs.”  

      Institutional knowledge alone is no longer sufficient justification for an individual's continued appointment to the Board ...

    12. National Amusements -- The Time for Settlement Is Now

      I actually thought that nothing could surprise me any longer in the ongoing debacle involving Sumner Redstone, National Amusements and Viacom.  That was, until, I saw the headline in yesterday's Los Angeles Times -- "Redstone Family Blasts Dauman After Viacom Profit Tumbles 27%".  The theater of absurdity which continues to play out in this matter in both public and in the courtroom has now reached an unprecedented level for such a major corporation. The Redstone family is now placing the blame on Viacom's poor performance in the 3rd quarter on its CEO, Philippe Dauman.  I guess it has nothing ...

      "Phishing Attacks Have Become Highly Sophisticated" by BoardProspects Member, Scott Goldman

      It’s hard to imagine that it’s come to this already. As if phishing attacks aren’t bad enough we’ve all been exposed to “spearphishing” attacks – which add a level of information that makes them more likely to get their victims to click on the link bait. Now we’ve got a highly sophisticated, very personalized and downright frightening form of phishing never seen before.
