Hidden Landmines in Comp Committee Charters

The latest edition of Ralph Ward’s Boardroom Insider contains an informative article on the above topic. Without giving it all away, here are a few highlights:

  • NASDAQ and NYSE listing rules will require stronger independence standards for comp committee members.
  • Mike Melbinger questions giving such committees responsibility for employee retirement and benefit plans matters. Learn why.
  • Bill Gerek questions adding the topic of risk. Again Ward and his guest help you analyze potential liabilities.
  • Ward also raises compliance issues with Internal Revenue Service code Section 162(m).

Other topics briefly covered in Ward’s newsletter include:

  • CEO Succession-Is Your Board Doing Its Job?
  • Private Companies Pick And Choose Governance Reforms
  • 5 Update Tips For Comp Clawbacks
  • Q&A: Directors For “Scaling Up” Our Venture?
  • Wait, there’s more…

Yes, sounds a little like an infomercial on one of those late night shopping channels for a Ginsu knife. No, I don’t get paid to hype Ward’s publication. All I can tell you is Boardroom Insider slices and dices so well I just feel compelled to get the word out to directors who may read Corporate Governance. Ralph is also the author of several great books.
