Executives of public and private companies will discuss managing critical issues during The Citadel Directors’ Institute in May.

Business leaders will talk about risk management, strategic planning, board governance and regulatory developments affecting companies during a program from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., May 2, at the Francis Marion Hotel in downtown Charleston.

Those in senior positions must stay on the forefront of emerging issues and stay connected, according to William Trumbull, dean of The Citadel School of Business, which is hosting the institute.

“The Citadel Directors’ Institute provides a forum for CEOs and directors to engage in active dialogue with nationally recognized leaders offering a wealth of experience and knowledge to help executives navigate the changing landscape of business today,” Trumbull said in a statement.

Expected speakers include former Delaware Supreme Court Chief Justice Myron Steele, Integrated Governance Solutions President and CEO Bill Bojan and The Conference Board Governance Center Executive Director Donna Dabney. U.S. Air Force retired Brigadier General Harvey W. Schiller will give the keynote address.

“The format of The Citadel Directors’ Institute is different than other programs in that we provide an intimate setting where participants can develop relationships and interact with prominent experts throughout the day,” said Steve Berson — a partner at presenting sponsor, law firm Nelson Mullins — in a statement. “Whether you are a director of a private or public company, your responsibilities are the same — to make that company exceed expectations.”

Space for the conference is limited to 75 participants, and tickets cost $395 per person.
