The 2019 Essentials will take place January 29 - 31 at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort.

Enhanced Service Provider Directory

The Society has recently launched a brand new Service Partner Directory. The Partner Directory has nearly 200 listings and is aimed at providing the Society’s in-house members - at public, private, and nonprofit companies - with information and contacts for services they require to conduct their critical day-to-day governance functions.

The new directory offers an Enhanced Listing which provides partners the opportunity to submit their own content and thought leadership. Think of it as a “microsite” on the Society’s website, for which each individual service partner/provider will have their own username & password to upload their information across various tabs of content.

Email Luke Vander Linden to express interest in upgrading your directory listing.

Society ALERT

The Alert™ is the Society’s weekly e-newsletter and communication vehicle. It is sent to all Society members via email, generally on Wednesday afternoons. The Alert™ is chiefly a news publication, covering happenings at the SEC, in Congress, and in the Courts. It also covers issuer and investor related governance developments and highlights filings made by issuers that would be of interest to members, including proxy season filings, studies, academic reports and other third party research.


A more casual monthly newsletter about the Society with more “human interest”-type stories about member benefits, upcoming events and news about your peers.


The Directors’ Cut™ is a new quarterly publication summarizing the most important governance-related news, tailored specifically for Corporate Board Members.

  • The Society is now selectively offering the Directors’ Cut to Service Provider partners for you to use as a benefit for your clients. Because of your support and special relationship with the Society, you can offer your Director- and C-Suite clients and prospects a complimentary subscription.

For more information on sponsoring these newsletters, email Luke Vander Linden. For how to offer the Directors' Cut to your clients, send an email to research@societycorpgov.org.

    Organizational Partners

    Looking for the most cost-effective way to get the most robust exposure for your marketing dollar? Want to plan your sponsorships with the Society during your annual budgeting process instead of getting surprised when the perfect opportunity comes up in the middle of the year?

    Organizational partners bundle their sponsorships into an annual plan that is more strategic, deeper, longer-term and more mutually beneficial than “one-off deals.” It literally takes what you would have likely sponsored anyway but with exclusive acknowledgements and added-value to both extend your brand and distribute your thought leadership.

    Each bundle is custom-assembled to fit each Service Provider Partner’s goals. Gather last year’s total activity with the Society and then contact Luke Vander Linden to discuss creating the perfect bundle for you.
