Executive Compensation Conference: Early Bird Rate Expires TODAY!

I’m very excited about our upcoming “Proxy Disclosure & 19th Annual Executive Compensation Conferences” – to be held virtually October 12-14th. Register now to get our “Early Bird” rate – which expires today, Friday, June 10th. The Conferences are bundled together for registration and pricing.

Here are just a few of the important trends that are going to grow in importance as you make year-end pay decisions and draft your 2023 proxy disclosures:

– SEC rulemaking: new rules on pay-for-performance, clawbacks, and human capital management disclosure are expected

“Vote No” campaigns against compensation committee members – and proxy contests making pay a factor

ESG in executive (and employee) pay plans

Market volatility

Scrutiny of pay ratios & income inequality

Our Conferences deliver expert guidance in a fast-moving, engaging format – plus invaluable course materials in the form of speaker “talking points” – so that you and your directors aren’t caught flat-footed by new expectations. You can also revisit all of the practical guidance as you prepare your proxy statement – along with the talking points you’ll receive, the on-demand archive will be available till next July at no extra cost.

Here are the agendas for the Conferences – 18 sessions over three days – with an incredible speaker lineup that includes BlackRock’s Michelle Edkins, Corp Fin’s Renee Jones, Wachtell’s Leo Strine, FW Cook’s Bindu Culas, Semler Brossy’s Blair Jones, Pay Governance’s Tara Tays, Morrison & Foerster’s Dave Lynn, WilmerHale’s Meredith Cross, Compensia’s Mark Borges, Hogan Lovells’ Alan Dye, Gibson Dunn’s Ron Mueller, and more…:

Early Bird Rate – Act by June 10th: Your directors are looking at you to stay ahead of the curve on new SEC disclosure rules, shifting stakeholder expectations, and heightened risks. To help you address these changes – and avoid costly pitfalls – we’re offering a special Early Bird Rate to attend these critical conferences (both of the Conferences are bundled together with a single price). Register by the end of today, Friday, June 10th to save $320 on a single user registration, and over $500 on our single office location and firm-wide registrations.

In addition, this year marks our “1st Annual Practical ESG Conference.” Anyone working in the compensation space also needs to understand ESG issues and how ESG data is tracked, because those metrics are now appearing in a majority of compensation plans. Our agenda covers employment law landmines, DEI trends, carbon accounting risks, and other hot topics. The registration fee for this Conference can be bundled together with the Proxy Disclosure & Executive Compensation Conferences for an additional discount – and is also subject to an Early Bird Rate that expires at the end of the day tomorrow, June 10th. Sign up online, email, or call 1-800-737-1271 to ensure you’re able to face these rapidly evolving issues with confidence.
