Board of Directors and Conflicts of Interest: Acting in whose best interest?

21/02/2018 11:30:00 AM | Fredericton
 Those who sit on boards must always be mindful of conflicts of interests – real or perceived. Directors on Crown corporations or government agencies can have many stakeholders and can find themselves in conflict of interest. Whose interest do they need to protect: the government or the public? The Auditor General of New Brunswick, Kim MacPherson, will be presenting some lessons learned from the Wastewater Commission report and other audits. The presentation will be followed by an interactive discussion with Beth Webster and Rachelle Gagnon on best practices. It is a ‘can’t miss’ session on a timely topic!
