The Securities & Exchange Commission has been considering universal proxy cards reform. Investors have long been advocating for space on the corporate ballot for director elections. Should the SEC move forward to propose a new rule that would require companies to include board members nominated by investors on their proxies? Would having one ballot in contested elections make it easier for investors to elect directors or will it cause confusion? Will newly approved proxy access rights be a factor?

Join us to engage with other key thought leaders from corporations, investors and other parties involved in the proxy process. As with all Governance Center roundtables, this is a highly interactive, invitation only meeting.
