Anne Simpson, Senior Portfolio Manager for Corporate Governance at CalPERS, discusses federal regulations, proxy access, the effort to put together a database of qualified board candidates, and CEO pay. I hope CalPERS will extend use of such videos to explain some of their more controversial proxy votes in upcoming proxy seasons.
Also with regard to CalPERS, I am helping to sponsor a candidate forum on July 6 in Sacramento. Please help spread the word. If you can’t attend, look for the video replay in a couple of weeks. I may post it on CorpGov.net but will be sure to post it at PERSWatch.net.
