Southern Regional Seminar Agenda


Role of the Board vs Role of Management - FMDC - Elective Course - Jack Randall, Randall Resources Int'l
We will provide a definition and review of what corporate governance means for mutual company directors as well as understanding your role as a board member.  Defining and developing the best practices approach to governance will also be a focus for us in this session. We will dig deep into the role of the management vs the role of the director and help establish clearer lines so the focus is where it should be for success.  Rounding out this session with ideas in evaluating the CEO make this a meeting you don't want to miss. 

Small Company Conflict of Interest - FMDC- Jack Randall, Randall Resources Int'l

(FMDC - Farm Mutual Director Certification course through our National Assn of Mutual Insurance Companies)
This course will provide an understanding of potential conflicts of interest and what effect they may have on a mutual insurance company.  We will provide examples of potential conflicts of interest found within our industry as well as strategies to repair them.  Developing a long-range plan to steer the mutual away form potential conflicts will be reviewed.  

Mock Board Meeting
Volunteers will run a mock board meeting and a moderator will walk us through the challenges that come with doing business as a board of directors.  Unintentionally violating laws doesn't make you innocent and we want to point out some common areas that tend to get overlooked in meetings.  While some of the meetings will seem entertaining,  the knowledge you will walk away with is invaluable! 

Discussions will continue regarding the errors that can happen in our board meeting and members will have roundtable discussions about additional board topics.  Always a requested session in our meetings.
