"Between say-on-pay and resulting litigation and an overall focus on pay packages and governance, the compensation committee is the hottest seat on the board right now," said TK Kerstetter, chairman of Corporate Board Member. " This event will provide participants a better understanding of their roles, responsibilities, and legal requirements in tackling executive compensation issues, and help directors and HR executives adequately evaluate and implement the most appropriate pay strategies."
The compensation event will take a deep-dive into issues such as investors’ versus management’s expectations, pay-for-performance trends, balancing short- and long-term incentives, and measuring CEO performance. Taking place at the historic and iconic NYSE building, attendees will have the opportunity to take a tour of the NYSE Trading Floor at the conclusion of the event.
Sponsors of the event include Compensation Advisory Partners, Jones Day, Mackenzie Partner, Meridian Compensation Partners, Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe, Pay Governance, and Pearl Meyer & Partners.
