Diane D. Miller, a specialist in executive and board searches and governance consulting, will discuss leading practices and processes for overseeing a company’s risk management activities and capitalizing on the critical link between strategy and risk at the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) 2013 Board Leadership Conference on October 13th.
The conference, titled “Future-Proofing the Boardroom," is a yearly event that brings together more than 800 public company directors to address emerging issues, share new ideas, and further the pursuit of exemplary board leadership.
Ms. Miller, the President and CEO of Wilcox Miller & Nelson, the Sacramento office of Career Partners International, is a board member of the California Chamber of Commerce where she serves as vice chair of their PAC. She also serves as chair of the Northern California Chapter board of the National Association of Corporate Directors, and is a Regent at the University of the Pacific, where she chairs the Audit Committee.
Ms. Miller joins an experienced panel of speakers to explore ways for the whole board, not just the audit or risk committees, to engage in effective risk governance.
