"The New Pay Legislation: Action Items"

A Critical Pre-Conference Webcast [Free with your Conference registration]

Thursday, July 29, 2010

2:00 - 3:00 pm, eastern [archive and transcript to follow]

With the new legislative pay reforms—particularly mandatory Say-on-Pay and the new "sleeper" Internal Pay Equity disclosure—all eyes will be focused like never before on executive compensation practices (and the resulting proxy disclosures). As a result, your superiors and clients will expect you to have the answers to their questions even before the SEC issues new rules. The new legislation impacts every public company—and this webcast will instruct you on what you need to start doing now, rather than just recite the new requirements.

You will not want to miss this special pre-conference webcast and its practical guidance on what to do now. Join:

  • Dave Lynn, CompensationStandards.com and Partner, Morrison & Foerster LLP
  • Mark Borges, Compensia
  • Mike Kesner, Deloitte Consulting

Among other topics, this program will cover:

—Mandatory say-on-pay votes—and ramifications
—A new internal pay equity disclosure (and opportunity)
—New compensation disclosure pitfalls and "sleepers"

This webcast will be a "must" for anyone who has any role in setting/approving compensation or the preparation or review of proxy statements. With Congress, the SEC Staff, investors and the media scrutinizing all executive compensation disclosures, it is critical to have the best possible guidance. This pre-conference session is the first step as part of the pair of full-day Conferences that will provide the latest essential—and practical—implementation guidance that you need.
