Early Bird Registration for Our Conferences Ends May 31st!

I’m really excited about our “Proxy Disclosure & 20th Annual Executive Compensation” Conferences – and not just because I’ve finally got a speaking part & am no longer the Fredo Corleone of  We’ve got a terrific lineup of expert speakers on 19 different panels over a 3–day period, and with potential implications of the SEC’s ambitious regulatory agenda continuing to loom large in the minds of public companies & their advisors, you can’t afford to miss this year’s conferences! But if you want to take advantage of our “early bird” registration deal for these essential conferences, you need to act now, because early bird registration ends on May 31st.

The Conferences are virtual, September 20th – 22nd. You can bundle registration with the “2nd Annual Practical ESG Conference” that’s happening virtually on September 19th, for an additional discount. Register online by credit card – or by emailing Or, call 1.800.737.1271. Here’s a reminder of the benefits of attending:

– The Conferences are timed & organized to give you the very latest action items that you’ll need to prepare for the flurry of year-end and proxy season activity. Why spend time & money tracking down piecemeal updates to share with your higher-ups & board – all while you’re under a deadline and have other pressing obligations, increasing the risk of mistakes – when you can get all of the key pointers at once?

– Unlike some conferences, the on-demand archives (and transcripts!) will be available at no additional charge to attendees after the event, and you can continue to access them all the way till July 2024. That means you can continue to refer back to the sessions as issues arise. Again, saving time & money.

– Due to new SEC rules, the shareholder proposal environment, the increasing emphasis on risk oversight and pressures that companies are facing from both ends of the political spectrum, the performance of boards, individual directors and – thanks to Delaware’s latest spin on Caremark, individual officers – will be subject to greater & greater scrutiny in the coming proxy seasons. That could affect director elections, as well as your company’s ability to raise capital, and your directors’ and officers’ exposure to derivative claims. Our expert panelists will be sharing practical action items to protect your board & officers – and risks to watch out for. Facing a low vote for any director is a nightmare scenario, even if you’re not the target of a proxy contest. This event will empower you to avoid that situation.
