WHY BOSMEC ?

The Board Secretary plays a key role in advancing corporate governance and is vital to the efficiency and effectiveness of the Board and to the smooth running of the company. The skills and breadth of knowledge required of today’s Board Secretary are numerous and varied in order that he/she can deliver essential services to ensure the well-being of the organization in terms of its legal operation, corporate administration,compliance with corporate governance, as well as statutory and regulatory requirements.

 

With the current business world facing challenges and risks associated with the dynamic economic environment, the role of the board secretary has never been so important. Across the MENA region, the heightened focus on corporate governance gives board secretaries an opportunity to step up their game in progressing as powerful cornerstones of strong corporate governance, compliance and integrity within the board.

 

Board secretaries are often pillars of support and sources of advice to influential stakeholders; their value extends beyond mere administrative efficiency. BOSMEC’20 will take you on a journey to explore the role of the board secretary in  detail.
