Update on the 2020 Directorship 100 Gala

This year, due to growing concern over COVID-19, NACD made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Directorship 100 Gala awards ceremony and dinner. Instead, the 2020 honorees will be honored on October 12, the opening day of the Virtual NACD Summit 2020. Their profiles will be shared prominently with all 21,000 NACD members, as well as with partner organizations and other key governance stakeholders. They also will be highlighted in the NACD Directorship magazine’s Annual List of the Most Influential People in Boardrooms and Corporate Governance.

The annual NACD Directorship 100 Awards celebration includes the presentation of six distinct honors: the B. Kenneth West Lifetime Achievement Award, Public Company Director of the Year, Private Company Director of the Year, Nonprofit Director of the Year, and the Directorship 100 (Directors and Governance Professionals categories).
