National Awards in Governance

In 2001, The Conference Board of Canada and Spencer Stuart founded the National Awards in Governance to recognize and share the innovations of boards of directors and governing bodies that believe, as we do, that governance is a dynamic and critical element of their organizations’ success. The awards were last held in 2009.
