January 29: Web - Board Preview: What's Next for Director Compensation

As the scope of Board responsibilities expands to include areas such as risk mitigation, shareholder communication and overall corporate strategy development, Directors face increased time commitments and accountabilities. The NACD’s annual report on Director compensation, developed with compensation consultancy Pearl Meyer & Partners, looks closely at the current range of corporate practices and pay program designs that affect Board structure and Director pay levels. Join us for a detailed review of findings from this special report. Each year, this highly anticipated study provides data on nearly 1,500 companies in a range of industries, from those with $50 million in revenue up to the largest U.S. companies. Our presenters will discuss the most likely trends and issues in Board pay for the upcoming 2015 proxy season.
Topics to be discussed include:
  • Compensation levels
  • Board pay structure
