2011 Investment Company Directors Conference
October 24–26, 2011
Chicago, IL

The rapidly changing environment for funds—from new regulatory requirements to an ever-changing marketplace—made IDC’s annual conference for fund directors a prime opportunity to gain insights into the implications of these changes for funds and their boards. This event was held on October 24–26, 2011 in Chicago, IL.

The conference covered important topics and offered opportunities to meet other directors and discuss issues and governance practices with them.


  • Management’s perspective on opportunities and challenges for the fund industry
  • Regulatory and litigation developments and what they mean for funds and their boards, including the Supreme Court’s Janus decision
  • Social media and other uses of new technologies by fund companies
  • Trends in governance practices, including retirement policies and committee mandates
