Hear from Previous Attendees:

"The topics concerning risk were very helpful and timely. I came away with some ideas that I have already spoke to our CEO about. With the FCA's increased scrutiny of boards lack of involvement and oversight in identifying and monitoring of all risk, the information was spot on."

"This meeting represents an excellent opportunity to network with System leaders, both CEOs and Board members."

"I always learn at this conference. I would recommend it to all board members."
