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.
