WCD's New Nominating & Governance Committee Peer Group is exclusively for WCD members currently serving on public board Nominating & Governance Committees. 

WCD is pleased to launch this strategic peer group in partnership with Global Executive Sponsor Spencer Stuart. Designed to cross WCD regions and chapters, you will have the opportunity to engage in a series of member-led, Zoom virtual peer exchanges, with a focus on small group breakouts to address increasingly complex issues.  Now more than ever, open and candid discussions within a trusted peer group are essential. 

If you are not a member, please complete the application to join.
