TORONTO, Dec. 6, 2013 /CNW/ - Is your company considering adopting changes to its disclosure and proxy process for the 2014 season? Join us for lunch to hear first-hand from issuers who have adopted advance notice by-laws, notice and access and majority voting. This panel of IROs and proxy experts will speak about the rationale, benefits and challenges associated with implementing these rules/by-laws and the effectiveness of corresponding communications strategies. Panellists will also review 2013 proxy topics, such as say on pay, and discuss disclosure issues that have recently impacted issuers. Be part of this timely and interactive discussion designed to help make 2014 a smoother proxy season.
The panel of proxy experts includes Carol Hansell, Partner, Hansell LLP, Valerie Douville, Senior Manager, Compliance & Disclosure, Toronto Stock Exchange, George Kesteven, Manger, Corporate & Investor Relations, Sterling Resources Ltd. and Christian Green, Director, Investor Relations & Compliance, RioCAN Real Estate Trust.
