The suite features director education resources and online training in key risk areas, comparative tools, and research and CLE programs to help these directors and officers achieve the highest standards of corporate conduct and compliance. Corporate Board Member's Board Education Program provides board leadership, corporate secretaries, and general counsel with critical updates and high-caliber thought leadership on key governance issues as well as peer-based events and networking opportunities.

The Education & Benchmarking Suite helps boards and their constituencies enhance their knowledge base and manage risk through comparative benchmarking reports, board member and GC educational events, and networking opportunities, as well as online access to training and events via iPads and board portals,” stated Tim Erblich, President of Corpedia.”Further, Corpedia and Corporate Board Member are committed to expanding offerings in key risk areas to help Boards stay abreast and informed of the latest developments.” “Being an effective board starts with the foundation of being an informed director. Now more than ever, it's imperative for companies to recognize the importance of director education,” said TK Kerstetter, President of Corporate Board Member. “The right kind of commitment starts at the top with the board and senior management. This partnership is designed to equip key decision makers with the tools necessary to improve governance, transparency, and effectiveness.” For more information on these initiatives, visit: www.boardmember.com/education.aspx and http://welcome.corpedia.com/resource-center/governance-oversight/.
