MSRB Governance Review
In September 2019, the MSRB established a special Board-level Governance Review Special Committee to conduct a thorough examination of our corporate governance practices, including Board size and composition among other topics. The year-long effort culminated in a series of enhancements that tighten the standards for selecting public Board members and reduce the size of the Board. The changes take effect with the fiscal year beginning October 1, 2020.
Hear more about these enhancements from the chair of the Board's Governance Review Special Committee in this September 2020 episode of the MSRB Podcast.
