The world of foundations and boards of directors are getting closer: SwissBoardForum new partner of the Foundation Board Academy

June 2021

The tasks and responsibilities of boards of directors of charitable foundations are increasingly similar to those of boards of directors. Both boards are responsible for the strategic direction and management of their organization and are committed to ensuring the most professional good governance possible. This is also reflected in the fourth edition of the Swiss Code of Foundations which has just been launched. We are very happy to welcome SwissBoardForum, one of the leading Swiss platforms for boards of directors and corporate governance, as a new partner of the Foundation Board Academy.

The activities of the SwissBoardForum focus on the personal exchange of experiences and the practical transfer of knowledge. The association, economically and politically independent, offers its 600 members regular events on topics related to boards of directors and corporate governance throughout Switzerland, as well as an inter-professional network of advice. administration.

In the future, the two partners will cooperate formally and in terms of content in selected areas. For example, SwissBoardForum President Silvan Felder will speak at the Foundation Board Academy’s First Compact Seminar – Good Foundation Governance, November 4-6, 2021, Hotel Odelya, Basel.

In collaboration with the SwissBoardForum, the Foundation Board Academy is planning an event for the boards of directors on the topic of foundation governance next year. Members of both organizations will also benefit from mutual discounts.
