Superannuation fund board chairs are faced with a myriad of responsibilities including the smooth running of the board, setting fund strategy, staying on top of regulation, maintaining a long-term view and a collaborative and productive relationship with the CEO.
The ninth conference will provide practical tools for chairs to improve board meetings, develop a good culture, deal with mergers and be on top of their evolving fiduciary duty. The event is a great opportunity to discuss issues with policymakers, politicians, regulators and peers in a collegiate and open environment.
The Conexus Financial Superannuation Chair Forum is the only conference tailored specifically for the needs of superannuation fund chairs and investment committee chairs.
