The modern corporate secretary plays an increasingly wider and in-depth role and is imposed with additional responsibilities in relation to the activities of the company and activities of the Board of Directors. Hence, more is expected of a corporate secretary today.
To be an effective modern corporate secretary , it is necessary to know and to understand the traditional functions, such as arranging Board meetings, preparing bundles of documents, taking minutes, filing documents, acting as liaisons for directors. There is also a further requirement to be familiarised with the general legislations that have an impact on the corporate secretary ‘s roles and duties, and governance matters.
In other words, the title, “corporate secretary”, carries with it a professional sense of responsibility that must be discharged with due care and diligence. Applying appropriate best practices in the performance of the functions as a corporate secretary can, and does, influence the performance of a company.
