Dear Colleagues:

The Conference Board of Canada and the DeGroote School of Business

The Directors College will address all areas of corporate governance,
including (but not limited to):

Executive and Board compensation;
Board committees (roles and responsibilities);
Director independence;
Effective Board management relations;

The role of the Board Chair (or "lead director");
Proxy voting;
Stock options;

We are now in the process of creating a registry of those individuals
(academics and practitioners) who are interested in the subjects of
corporate governance and director education. If you would like to be
included in this registry, please drop me a quick email reply at:

A brief summary of your interests and qualifications in these areas (i.e.
