A Message from the President


Beth BolandMy fellow NACD members and corporate directors,

As we look toward our upcoming season of programming, I am mindful of, and grateful for, the support of our chapter’s board of directors.  Our board members work tirelessly on our programming committee, our strategic outreach with other organizations, in support of our Director of the Year awards, and to ensure that you, our members, enjoy world class NACD events. 
The events in our upcoming season promise to be educational, topical and timely.  In addition to our very popular Breakfast Series, we have rolled out our new Boot Camp Series.  We will host two Boot Camps this season; the Aspiring Director Boot Camp in May 2018, and the Experienced Director Boot Camp in June 2018.  We are also experimenting with a new webcast series, which delves into issues pertinent to your service on your boards. 
Please mark your calendars for our Fall Breakfast programs.  On September 19th we are holding our annual Breakfast Kickoff event, NE Business Visionaries Speak, featuring a conversation with Tom Kennedy, Chair and CEO of Raytheon, and other top business leaders.  On October 17th our Chapter, in conjunction with the MA Business Roundtable, will offer a fascinating program on Building a Great Board.  On November 14th we will take an in-depth look at Compensation Trends – The Four You Can’t Ignore.  Experienced public company compensation chairs and committee members will share their thoughts and experience on navigating the evolving role of the Compensation Committee.
Our chapter is grateful for the partnership of our sponsors, who provide financial support and expert speakers for our events.  We value our relationships with our trade association partners who co-host events with us.  Most of all, we appreciate the dedication of our NACD members, to the tenets of leadership in corporate governance.  Our mission is to offer top-notch programming to help you lead in your boardrooms.  If you would like to provide any feedback on how we can make your NACD experience even better, please send us an email at  Thank you for your commitment to leading governance practices, and I hope to see you at our upcoming events.
