The 2013 proxy season is sure to be a momentous one! The increased implementation of clawback provisions, the continuing evolution of Section 409A and 162(m) practices in the absence of Internal Revenue Service guidance, the focus on increasing tax revenue, and the design issues inherent in aligning pay with performance cloud the already-muddied waters of executive compensation policies and practices. New stock exchange listing standards, shifting “best practices,” legislated “say on pay,” and other Dodd-Frank requirements that have emboldened institutional investor activism and spurred pay litigation are affecting how compensation committees are approaching – and disclosing – their pay decisions and practices. Meanwhile, across all sectors, negotiation and renegotiation of CEO employment contracts continue, with action dictated by increased disclosure, corporate governance principles, and ethical issues.
Attend this annual, advanced course of study, comprising 13 hours of instruction, including one hour of ethics, so that you can learn about the most recent legislative and regulatory initiatives and gain a better understanding of what the future holds in consideration of these important legal developments in executive and director compensation.

I was very pleased with all aspects of this course; the instructors were very topical and knowledgeable; the topics were topical and valuable and the ease of the webcast was excellent! My first time attending this conference/webcast and I will be back!
Very informative program. The topics were very germane to issues currently faced by the executive compensation bar.
Great course as usual!
