NEW YORK, Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Association of Corporate Directors ("NACD") has announced its 2012 NACD-Directorship 100 honorees which recognizes the most influential people in the boardroom community, including directors and officers, as well as corporate governance experts, journalists, regulators, academics and counselors. The Society of Corporate Secretaries & Governance Professionals heartily congratulates the honored directors, many of whom serve on companies whose secretaries and governance professionals are our members.
In addition, the Society congratulates its own President and CEO, Kenneth A. Bertsch, for being named to the list of Governance Professionals and Institutions. "I am deeply honored to be named this year to the NACD Directorship 100 as a representative of our 3,000 members, who quietly but effectively play a significant role in shaping the greater boardroom agenda," says Bertsch. "Our members row the laboring oar on getting the governance work done while supporting the boards and management at the companies they serve. Many of them have been named in years past, and I am proud to represent them this year."
Many of the honorees have been past speakers at Society conferences, and we are pleased to announce that several of those recognized in the NACD 100 will be speaking at the Northeast, Western, and Midwest Regional Conferences in October and November.
