As we continue to adjust to the ongoing pandemic, Boards must grapple with ever-changing expectations and responsibilities, including oversight of complex operational issues, risk management, board succession, audit committee oversight, executive compensation, disclosure and responsiveness to and communication with shareholders pressing different concerns.
