NACD Board Leadership Conference NACD Chapter System

Peering Into the Political Crystal Ball - NACD NJ SHOWCASE EVENT

January 19, 2017
Piscataway, NJ


The long national nightmare of the 2016 Presidential election is over. But is a new one just beginning?
No one can predict with certainty what the new Trump administration will bring, except that it will be very different from what we have become accustomed to. What new challenges are likely in store for your Board in 2017 and beyond as a result? Once a few months have gone by and the new administration begins to take shape, will the dust have settled enough so that the future is a bit clearer than it was on November 8, when the political earthquake struck?
This opportunity to join your director peers and question the experts directly about what this stunning seismic event means for your company, and its future planning and strategy, is too important to miss.
