More Than a Rumor! SEC Will Indeed Propose Pay Disparity Rules Soon

A few weeks ago, I blogged about a rumor that the SEC is close to proposing pay disparity rules. This rumor appears to be confirmed, as noted in this article, when new SEC Chair White testified on Tuesday before the Senate Banking Committee that a pay disparity rule proposal will be coming in the next month or two.

So we don’t know the exact timing of a proposal – but we do know that it will be soon. Likely before our combined conferences, where it would be covered by Corp Fin Director Keith Higgins and other panels…

Registrations for our combined pair of conferences – in DC and via video webcast – are strong and for good reason. The full agendas for the Conferences are posted. Register now.

ISS Seeks Input for ’14 Policy Updates

As noted in this Gibson Dunn blog, ISS has posted its policy survey to solicit comments ahead of announcing its 2014 voting policies – the comment period ends September 13th. ISS intends to announce its final policies about 1-2 weeks earlier than in previous years – in early November.

This is your opportunity to make yourself heard. As well as during the 75-minute panel entitled “Q&A with ISS” during our conference – if you have questions that you want asked, please email them to me – you will be kept anonymous.
