On Wednesday, September 7, the Practicing Law Institute hosts the ninth annual Directors Institute on Corporate Governance. The seminar will be groupcast to the University of Chicago Gleacher Center, 450 N. Cityfront Plaza Drive in Chicago. The Institute begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m.
In the past year new expectations have been placed on boards in critical areas of governance, including board succession, shareholder relations, executive compensation, and heightened enforcement activity. The Dodd-Frank Act put new requirements on companies and on boards, and boards must be mindful of both the oversight implications and heightened pressures for shareholder engagement. At this renowned institute, leading corporate governance experts -- directors, government officials, corporate counsel, and academics -- will share their perspectives on the fast-changing regulatory environment, the new expectations for board oversight, and needed steps boards will want to consider.
Ira Millstein, senior associate dean for corporate governance, Yale School of Management, partner, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, will deliver the keynote address outlining the challenges for directors in a world of short-term pressures.
Other speakers are Holly J. Gregory; Howard B. Dicker, Weil, Gotshal & Manges, LLP; Michael R Young, Willkie Farr & Gallagher; Eric M. Pillmore, senior advisor, Deloitte LLP; and George S. Canellos, regional director, New York Regional Office, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
