Shareholder Proposals & Engagements – A Strategy for Responding: A joint meeting of NIRI DFW and the Society for Corporate Governance

Every public company, regardless of size, industry, or location, must be prepared to respond to challenging shareholder proposals and this panel is well equipped to help get your preparations started.

Society of Corporate Governance and NIRI DFW have engineered a panel comprising corporate attorneys, outside legal counsel, IR professionals, and even proxy advisor/solicitors to provide guidance on almost every angle related to your next proxy, with a special focus on managing Activist Initiatives.

This esteemed and experienced panel of experts will share strategies for responding to proxies from a legal perspective, how to respond from the IR function, and how to mount effective strategies to engage institutional shareholders and proxy advisory firms, such as ISS and Glass Lewis.

This will include responding to:

  • Say On Pay Initiatives;
  • Board Member Challenges;
  • Compensation Criticisms and;
  • Unexpected shareholder proposals.

This has been a very popular lunch topic in years past and promises to generate a crowd on November 7, 2019 at the El Fenix on McKinney near Downtown Dallas. We’ll open doors at 11 a.m. for networking and begin the program at noon.

Holders of the NIRI IRC® credential can earn 1 professional development unit (PDU) per meeting/webinar. IRC-credentialed speakers may also earn PDUs. More information is available at www.niri.org/certification.
