Frequently Asked Questions

What is the status of NACD Summit? 

We have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel our in-person NACD Summit this year. However, we are working hard to bring you a different, equally impactful digital version, and we look forward to connecting with you through an online experience. The virtual event will take place Monday, Oct. 12 through Tuesday, Oct. 13, covering over four hours of content across two days. More details to come soon!

What are the future plans for this event? 

We’re working on exciting plans to reimagine our Summit to bring the content, innovation, and learning to you digitally. We’ll share more as soon as we can.

Is there a cost to participate in the online experience for NACD Summit 2020?

No. While we are sad not to be with everyone in person, we are thrilled to open up the online content to all NACD members!

Will the virtual version of NACD Summit 2020 still confer NACD Fellowship or Directorship Certification™ credits?

Yes. Although the virtual version will not confer as many credits as our regular, in-person Summit, we do plan to award credits. We will share more details soon. If you have questions specifically about your NACD Fellowship or Directorship Certification status, please contact your Board Advisor.

Will the virtual Summit be recorded for viewing at a later time, or do I have to attend the session I registered for during the designated time slot?

We will record as much content as possible for on-demand viewing. However, some content may only be available during the broadcast event, so we encourage our members to join us to live for maximum engagement.

What other virtual events are currently available to me?

We have a lot of content available to you online! We offer a variety of NACD virtual learning opportunities from our podcasts and webinars to upcoming events, virtual roundtables, and comprehensive education courses,
