Video Webcast Details

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an effect on all business activities.  Workplace and safety concerns, including COVID-19 liability exposure and staffing complications, have become a larger area of board focus. When boards meet to discuss these issues, virtual board or shareholder meetings may not have been contemplated in the bylaws and may require an amendment.  Attorneys who advise these boards are facing many questions, often under urgent circumstances.

During this video webcast panelists will highlight how to assess and address the most actionable concerns for distressed organizations. Topics of discussion will include:

  • Principles of corporate governance on a “clear day”
  • How governance may be affected by distress, and the effects of COVID-19
  • Actions boards can take to anticipate and deal with distress

Questions submitted during the program will be answered live by the faculty. All registrants will receive a set of downloadable course materials to accompany the program.
