Vision and Mission


  • NACD aspires to a world where...
  • Businesses are sustainable, profitable and trusted.
  • NACD is providing the tools, resources and voice to advance this vision.


NACD advances exemplary board leadership - for directors, by directors.  Our team provides the information and insights that board members rely upon to confidently navigate business challenges and enhance long-term shareowner value. Importantly, directors and boards turn to NACD to gain the knowledge and wisdom to become a strategic asset to their companies, and NACD amplifies the collective voice of directors in the national dialogue on board governance issues.  NACD is the Voice of the Director. This is not corporate speak: Our entire organization is focused on meeting the needs of board members, and supporting directors to perform more effectively and efficiently.
