Corporate Governance: Wait, Nobody Said Anything About a Test!
For me, the best part of passing the bar examination was the knowledge that I’d never have to take another test again in my life. That’s why it was disheartening to learn that I just might have to take another one in the highly unlikely event that a public company someday wants to consider adding me to its board.
That’s because this fall, the NACD plans to roll out a voluntary certification program for board members, and it includes a certification exam. Don’t expect it to be quite as easy as the written exam you took when you got your driver’s license – the test has been designed by a committee whose members include a former Delaware Supreme Court Justice, a former SEC general counsel, & a former head of the FASB.
