The Forum's webinars feature an hour long presentation on a discrete topic of interest to fund directors. The webinars cover a broad range of technical topics, regulatory issues, and governance-related items. Some webinars are aimed squarely at board oversight issues, and some take a broader view of industry trends. Every webinar features speakers who have particular knowledge about the subject-matter at issue.
All of the Forum's webinars are free to its members, both live and archived versions. The Forum's webinar archives contain links to the written materials and the audio recording of each webinar.
