New expectations and responsibilities are being placed on boards in critical areas of governance, including disclosure, oversight of complex operational issues, risk management, board succession, audit committee oversight, executive compensation, and responsiveness to and communication with investors pressing different concerns. In addition, in years past the Dodd-Frank Act, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and other anti-bribery laws have put new requirements on companies and on boards.
