General Information


Back by popular demand! Attendees will attend some general sessions and then have a choice of concurrent sessions that will dive deeper into topics pertaining to corporate governance. The Directors’ Boot Camp is still designed to provide peers with an opportunity to exchange ideas through group exercises, facilitated group discussions, and networking opportunities.

Our faculty members for Directors’ Boot Camp are experts in their specific subject areas and dedicated to the success of this program and the educational experience NAMIC strives to achieve. Faculty members teach the subject matter from a directors’ perspective rather than that of management or the chief executive officer.

The Directors' Boot Camp has a combination of general session and breakout sessions, to allow attendees to pick which subjects are most pertinent to them. Group exercises and discussions are intermixed, to encourage discussion among peers, and provide networking opportunities.

Topics include:

  • Mutual Governance Overview
  • Role of the Board vs. Role of Management
  • Understanding Reinsurance as a Risk & Financial Management Tool
  • Basics of Financial Statements
  • Investment Perspectives
  • Legislative and Regulatory Landscape
  • Enterprise Risk Management Concept including Emerging Risks
  • Board Dynamics
  • CEO Succession & Transition Planning Strategy
  • Board Evaluation & Corporate Governance Annual Disclosure
  • Governance Best Practices
  • Executive Compensation Trends
