The Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance announced upcoming events. I would certainly attend, if I lived closer.
March 19, 2014. The Center will be hosting its 2014 Corporate Governance Symposium, “Governance Issues of Critical Importance to Institutional Investors in 2014.” The Symposium will begin with a panel of institutional investors comprised of large money managers, pension funds, private equity investors, and proxy advisory firms, during which each panelist will share what matters most to them. The Symposium will then continue with the presentation of four academic papers on topics that are of critical importance to institutional investors today.
April 22, 2014. The Center will be co-sponsoring a roundtable on April 22, 2014 with the Center for Audit Quality at the University of Delaware. The program will be based on the recent report issued by a group of corporate governance and policy organizations, “Enhancing the Audit Committee Report – A Call to Action.” The Audit Committee Collaboration calls on audit committees of public companies of all sizes and industries to proactively strengthen their public disclosures in order to more effectively convey to investors and others the critical aspects of the important work that audit committees currently perform.
