Tuesday, September 14, 2010

With more companies either conducting their annual meetings solely online - or holding hybrid meetings that are both online and in a physical location - many are wondering what is involved and what issues they should consider before raising the topic internally. Join these experts who are the pioneers that have been through the virtual or hybrid experience already:

  • Cathy Conlon, Vice President, Strategic Development, Broadridge
  • Carl Hagberg, Independent Inspector of Elections and Editor of The Shareholder Service Optimizer
  • Lisa Beth Lentini, Senior Corporate Counsel, Best Buy
  • Scott McMillen, Vice President & Senior Corporate Counsel, The Charles Schwab Corporation
  • Doug Stewart, Senior Attorney, Intel Corp.

Among other topics, this program will cover:

  • How does the "virtual annual meeting" work? How about a "hybrid" physical and online meeting?
  • What concerns should be considered before holding a virtual annual meeting?
  • What voting safeguards are necessary when permitting "live" voting online during the annual meeting?
  • What is the interplay between the online and physical meeting for a hybrid meeting?
  • What are the lessons learned from those that have pioneered the process?
