For the past nine years, the Forum has brought together 48 corporate executive compensation leaders, lawyers and consultants representing the largest corporations and renowned firms from across America, to exchange ideas, share experiences, and validate strategies on the evolving shareholder, business, and regulatory pressures on executive pay.
Using candid, peer-driven discussion, this Forum explores key trends and developments in executive compensation demands, design and disclosure, to discern best practices that balance stakeholder interests.
This advisory group of leading executive compensation practitioners drafted the Agenda and personally nominated all invitees to the Forum.
