A Two Day National Conference on Corporate Governance in Context of Changing Business Dynamics will take place on September 20-21, 2014 and is being organised by RMLNLU, Lucknow in association with ICSI, Lucknow Chapter.
Corporate governance is a complex, multi‐faceted subject matter involving not only legislation and regulation but also what is usually known as ‘best practice’, which is very much a matter of corporate culture, mind‐set and education.
Corporate governance is concerned with the way the power is exercised over corporate entities. All corporate entities need governing — listed companies, wholly‐owned subsidiaries, subsidiaries with minority interests, family‐dominated companies, joint ventures, not‐for‐profit entities, and the rest.
Corporate governance needs to be distinguished from management: management runs the enterprise, while the governing body ensures that it is being well run and is heading in the right direction.
The steps that companies and their boards could take towards better corporate governance include recognizing that good corporate governance is about the effectiveness of the governing body — not about compliance with codes; reviewing board processes including the chairman’s leadership role, the balance and style of the board, the caliber and contribution of the outside directors, and monitor the board’s performance; and improving directors’ knowledge of the business and ensure that they have the information they want.
Other steps involve ensuring that directors’ remuneration packages are justifiable and justified; reviewing relations between the company and shareholders, particularly institutional investors, and with auditors, regulators, and other stakeholders; and, ensuring that the company secretary along with legal professionals provides value to the Stakeholders.
In view of the above Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya Law University, Lucknow and Northern India Regional Council of ICSI are organizing a National Conference on “Corporate Governance in the context of changing socio‐economic imperatives”. We hope that the deliberations shall immensely benefit the Academicians, Professionals and Students of this field.
Apart from hard controls as embodied in Companies act, 2013, soft controls are indispensable for better corporate governance.
