With two proxy season's worth of experience under our belt, many are wondering what new developments, including the elimination of broker nonvotes in director elections—and "lessons learned" from the first two seasons—will impact their e-proxy strategy for this proxy season. This webcast will explain the voting patterns you should expect—and provide solicitation strategies to help you be better prepared. Whether your company will be trying voluntary e-proxy for the first time or this is your third time around, you will want the practical guidance from these experts:

  • Lyell Dampeer, President, Broadridge Financial Solutions
  • Thomas Ball, Senior Managing Director, Morrow & Co.
  • Keir Gumbs, Covington & Burling LLP
  • Carl Hagberg, Independent Inspector of Elections and Editor of The Shareholder Service Optimizer
  • Paul Schulman, Executive Managing Director, The Altman Group

Among the topics of this program are:

  • What will voting patterns look like this proxy season?
  • What are the "lessons learned" from last proxy season in determining whether to forego paper this proxy season?
  • How should your proxy solicitation and IR strategies change in the wake of E-Proxy, including the elimination of broker nonvotes in director elections?
