Online Webinar

Please join us for the fourth annual Baker Botts Board of Directors Forum on Tuesday, January 26th.

This will be an opportunity to hear from fellow board members and C-Suite executives. We will discuss challenges and trends confronting directors and officers, and examine approaches and solutions for pressing issues.

The program will feature:
