Much has changed over the past decade in the post-Sarbanes-Oxley world. With Sarbanes-Oxley, the shift in power or authority began with the requirements to increase the number of independent directors and for boards to become more active and engaged. Transparency in boardroom decisions is the clarion call of the day, and this seminar investigates the role of the independent chairman and delves into annual elections and the impact of activist shareholders. A panel of experts will debate the issue of who is really in control of the boardroom.
