Why is gender diversity – or for that matter, Board diversity – important for an effective Board?
How does an independent director suddenly lose his “independence” after nine years on the Board?
How do directors remove the Board Chairman?
The answers to these questions and more are provided in the Nominating Committee Guide, the definitive guide to the roles, duties, challenges and leading practices of NCs.
Aimed especially at Singapore-listed companies, the Nominating Committee Guide provides comprehensive coverage of the regulatory and practical aspects of the responsibilities and issues faced by the chairman and members of an NC. These include:
The composition of the Board and the NC.
The NC calendar and agenda.
The process for the nomination, appointment and termination of directors.
Succession planning for directors and senior management.
Considerations for Board diversity and director independence.
Professional development of directors.
Evaluation of the Board, Committees and individual directors.
The Nominating Committee Guide has been produced with the support of EY, and a review panel of leading practitioners and professionals in the corporate governance field. It is part of a series of Corporate Governance Guides that covers Boards and Board Committees. It is produced by the Singapore Institute of Directors with the support of the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority, the Monetary Authority of Singapore, and the Singapore Exchange Limited.
