Executive Compensation has been one of the key points of contention between issuers and investors through the past three proxy seasons. Comments are made on the complexity of executive compensation plans and disclosures. In an effort to move the discussion around executive compensation forward, The Conference Board, in collaboration with the Center On Executive Compensation and The Society of Corporate Secretaries and Governance Professionals, convened a working group to propose a set of principles and working definitions of "realized" and "realizable" pay to suplement the existing executive compensation proxy disclosures. Over the summer of 2013, the working group has interacted with issuers and investors to refine the proposal.

This webcast will present the working group's report and will cover issues such as:

  • How the definitions of "realized" and "realizable" pay were developed
  • Feedback from the business community on key issues
  • Implementation of the Working Group's principles and definitions

For more on the working group, please visit the working webpage at

Audience: Corporate secretaries, directors of corporate governance, chief human resources officers, heads of total rewards, compensation and benefits executives, heads of governance and portfolio managers of institutional investors.
