Third Annual Directors' Institute, January 13-15, 2009

The Forum's Third Annual Directors' Institute is right around the corner.  This year's Institute will be held in Sanibel Harbour, Florida from January 13-15, 2009.
This one of a kind program for fund directors only will focus on difficult issues Boards are facing during the contract renewal process, including the effect of outflows and how the financial condition of the adviser should factor into the Board's consideration of the advisory contract.  The afternoon of January 13, participants will examine the role Boards play in fund mergers.  Andrew J. Donohue, Director of the Division of Investment Management at the US Securities and Exchange Commission, will give the keynote address that evening.
The host hotel is the Sanibel Harbour Resort & Spa, and the special room rate available to attendees will expire next Friday, December 12th.  To make a reservation, please call (800) 767-7777 and reference group #10B21Z.

We hope to see you in Florida in January.
