About Society for Corporate Governance
Founded in 1946, the Society for Corporate Governance (the "Society") is a non-profit membership organization (Section 501(c)(6)) comprised principally of corporate secretaries and business executives in governance, ethics and compliance functions at public, private and not-for-profit organizations. Members are responsible for supporting their boards of directors and executive management in matters such as board practices, compliance, regulation and legal matters, shareholder relations and subsidiary management. The Society seeks to be a positive force for responsible corporate governance, providing news, research and "best practice" advice and providing professional development and education through seminars and conferences. The Society is administered by a national staff of 9 located primarily in New York City, by members who serve on the board and standing committees, and through the member activities of 21 local chapters.
