Board Compensation and Shareholder Interests

Date: December 10, 2015
Time: 10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

The median retainer for S&P 500 directors has increased 16.8% in the past five years. In contrast to executive pay, directors occupy the precarious position of setting their own compensation levels. Director pay has been placed under the microscope by activist investors and plaintiff attorneys in recent years, highlighting the importance of setting reasonable board compensation levels. 

Join Equilar and Meridian Compensation Partners for an interactive webinar looking at board, leadership, and committee compensation within the S&P 500 and evolving trends over the last five years.

Gain valuable insights to help ensure your board members are compensated appropriately in a competitive marketplace while balancing the spectrum of key stakeholder interests. 

Webinar topics include:

  • A review of trends in median board pay at S&P 500 companies

  • Key elements directors should consider when setting their own packages

  • Differences between director and executive pay as it relates to pay for performance specifically

  • Red flag for investors and other stakeholders related to director retainers
