Corporate Governance - Mitratech

Corporate Governance

An organization's board of directors is central to corporate governance, and its relationship to shareholders and management is critical. The Office of the Corporate Secretary exists to bridge a gap, advising the Board of Directors on their legal responsibilities and ensuring regulatory compliance, while managing governance structures and mechanisms, corporate conduct within specific environments, as well as board, shareholder and trustee meetings. Unintended compliance errors can place a business at risk, and missing filing deadlines can be costly.
