With the SEC’s renewed drive for its strict implementation of the Revised Code of Corporate Governance that penalizes businesses for violation of its provisions, CGBP is launching this annual education awareness training to help companies comply with the SEC-mandated requirements and to help board directors align their skills to the global standard and best practices on board effectiveness. Board directors of public & publiclylisted companies are also required to attend a corporate governance training once a year to be eligible for election / re-election in the board of a corporation.

In this SEC-accredited program, we will provide you with SEC updates and feature the global best practices of highly effective boards as well as examples on how to implement corporate governance in your organization. Attend and gain more success with better governance!
