Our Model Say-on-Pay Disclosures

On, we just posted the Spring 2011 issue of the Compensation Standards newsletter, in which Dave Lynn has drafted model say-on-pay disclosures to help you prepare your upcoming proxy statement. It includes a model executive summary, say-on-pay resolution and say-on-frequency resolution. We have also posted a Word version of the newsletter so that you can cut and paste as a starting point for your proxy disclosures.
