Course Materials Now Available: “5th Annual Proxy Disclosure” and “7th Annual Executive Compensation”

We have posted the Course Materials for our week of big Conferences coming up in one week – the huge set related to each Conference is here: “5th Annual Proxy Disclosure Conference” and “7th Annual Executive Compensation Conference.”

For those seeking CLE credit, here’s a list of states in which credit is available for watching the Conferences live in Chicago and by video webcast. Note that the list is broken out for each of the Conferences – and note that a few states are listed as “pending” (check back to determine if the Conferences are approved in those states as we will be updating the list).

Act Now: As happens so often, there is now a mad rush for folks to register for these Conferences that begin on Monday, September 20th. With an aggregate of over 50 panels (including the “18th Annual NASPP Conference”), if these Conferences don’t help get you prepared for the upcoming proxy season of change, nothing will. You can either register for the three days of the “18th Annual NASPP Conference” (in Chicago) – or the two days of the “5th Annual Proxy Disclosure Conference” & “7th Annual Executive Compensation Conference” (in Chicago or by video webcast) or a combination of both. Note that we just extended the length of the last panel of the” 5th Annual Proxy Disclosure Conference” to cover proxy access in more depth. Register Now.
