Location: Offices of Deloitte, Boston

The 2020 proxy season represents more than just a concentrated period in the spring when public companies host annual meetings for shareholders. These meetings, combined with issuance of the annual proxy statement, are a significant opportunity for those charged with governance to transparently share the overall outlook of the company and increase confidence of current and would be investors, along with other stakeholders. With shifting definitions of corporate governance impacting how corporations need to communicate with a broader group of stakeholders, all eyes will be turning to this proxy season. 
 
Join this NACD New England event as panelists elicit perspectives on key issues that may be the focus during the 2020 proxy season from a variety of participants in the capital market system.
