The reception will feature guest speaker Joe Lumarda, senior vice president for Capital Group Private Client Services and vice president of Capital Guardian Trust Company. Drawing on his deep background in nonprofit and civic service, Mr. Lumarda will share strategies for conveying the value of service to your company and ways to build board leadership and governance skills among employees.
