Dr. Pogue Attends National Association of Corporate Directors
National Directorship Forum as Part of
Board Leadership Fellow Training


Phoenix, AZ - May 26, 2011 - Dr. Laura Pogue, Chief Executive Officer of Complete Consulting, Inc., a leader in online education, attended a National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) Directorship Forum at the Metropolitan Club in New York City from May 23 - 24, 2011. Educational credits contribute to Dr. Pogue earning her NACD Board Leadership Fellow status later this year.

Entitled "Driving Boardroom Innovation," the forum brought together board veterans from the country's leading companies and aspiring board directors to discuss and explore critical boardroom issues.  Panels, workshops, and peer exchange sessions helped participants gain technical expertise, as well as deepen thought leadership.

"NACD does a tremendous job of bringing together serving board members and experts who offer invaluable insights on board leadership," says Dr. Pogue. "Through peer exchange sessions, I learned from those who are in the trenches addressing audit challenges, board building and composition, liability, and performance metrics, among other hot-topic issues."

"Building technical expertise and contacts go hand and hand with NACD events," continues Dr. Pogue. "Today, we're learning together about the need for more diverse boards and how to implement the Dodd Frank legislation, for example. Tomorrow, we'll be serving side by side, putting our shared education to work for companies, their employees, and shareholders."

During additional workshops and talks, board members from the country's top companies, such as KPMG or Ford Motor Company, spoke about managing change through informed decision-making. "Highly effective board leaders have a deep knowledge base, are proactive, and add value in strategic discussions," says Dr. Pogue. "Through NACD, I'm gaining the knowledge of best practices, the professional network, and the confidence to offer the same."

Educational credits earned from attendance at the Directorship Forum, as well as her participation in an NACD Master Class this summer, contribute toward Dr. Pogue's attainment of NACD Board Leadership Fellow status and per professional development. Dr. Pogue is an active member of the Phoenix Chapter of the NACD.
