"Conduct of the Annual Meeting"

Wednesday, March 6, 2019

2:00 - 2:45 pm, eastern [archive and transcript to follow]

This year, holding an annual meeting of shareholders has more risks than ever before. Investors are becoming increasingly vocal at meetings and asking tougher questions - meetings have become real shareholder events as more shareholder proposals gain majority support and "vote no" campaigns grow. Finally, there are many thorny issues regarding how to count votes.

Join our experts:

  • Greg Belliston, Assistant General Counsel & Assistant Corporate Secretary, Nu Skin Enterprises
  • Lindsay Blackwood, Assistant General Counsel & Corporate Secretary, The Brink's Company
  • Sheilagh Clarke, SVP, General Counsel & Secretary, Foot Locker
  • Carl Hagberg, Independent Inspector of Elections and Editor of The Shareholder Service Optimizer
  • Rick Hansen, Assistant General Counsel & Corporate Secretary, General Motors

Among other topics, this program will cover:

  • How to handle common and troublesome tabulation issues
  • How to handle meeting attendees that act inappropriately
  • How to deal with the press
  • What types of special logistics should you consider before the meeting
  • How to prepare your officers and directors for tough questions raised during the meeting

How to access the webcast program: Visit the home page of TheCorporateCounsel.net on the day of the webcast - and you'll see a box in the middle with a link to the webcast. You need either HTML5, Flash or Windows Media to listen to the webcast - when you click the webcast link, our system will know which of these you are using. Here's our system requirements - and here's how to check your system. Here's why we don't show slides online for those programs that have course materials.

What you can do if you can't access the live program: If you have a scheduling conflict or have problems accessing webcasts generally (due to firewalls, etc.), an audio archive of the webcast will be posted a few hours after the program - and a text transcript of the program will be posted on TheCorporateCounsel.net about a week after the live webcast. We don't apply for CLE for any of our audio webcasts. If you want to download the audio after the webcast is over, we understand that you can do that with software called SoundLeech - or if you have an Apple device, download the Puffin app (which is a browser), then log-in as usual to our site and select "Listen via Flash."
