About the Mutual Fund Directors Forum
The Mutual Fund Directors Forum is an independent, non-profit organization that serves independent directors of U.S. mutual funds. The Forum enhances the governance of mutual funds by educating independent directors and providing them with a voice in the key policy issues affecting mutual funds and their shareholders.
Each member board has a seat on the Forum’s Steering Committee, giving members the opportunity to participate on a regular basis in the planning of Forum activities and the formulation of Forum policy. The Forum’s Board of Directors has extensive experience in mutual fund governance, and it is supported by an Advisory Board that is comprised of fund independent directors and individuals from major organizations supporting the mutual fund industry.
The Forum offers a diverse array of educational programs designed to address issues of concern for directors of all experience levels. In addition to formal education programs, the Forum is committed to offering opportunities for independent directors to learn from one another. The Forum’s success relies on the leadership and participation of intelligent and engaged individuals from our member fund complexes. More information about member benefits is available here.
