In 2011, the SEC adopted new rules that call for companies to consider risk associated with compensation plans and the participation of shareholders in executive compensation practices. Companies are likely to face yet another set of challenges as other Dodd-Frank executive compensation provisions are expected to take effect sometime this year.
In a two-hour Live webcast, a panel of distinguished experts being assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide an in-depth discussion of the significant issues in the mix including:
- Dodd-Frank Provisions that Impact Executive Compensation
- Review of Existing Rules on Say-on-Pay, Golden Parachutes and Clawbacks
- Voting Guidelines under the ISS
- Compensation Arrangements
- Developing Effective Compensation Strategies, Risk Assessments and Benchmarking Practices
- Preparing for Dodd-Frank Executive Compensation Provisions to Take Effect in 2013
The program will cover the topics above along with a Q&A panel in which the attendees will be invited to ask the speakers questions.
