Please join us for a webinar on the SEC’s Pay Versus Performance (PVP) rules, led by compensation experts from Pay Governance LLC. This session will educate board members on how to comply with the new disclosure requirements. With limited exception, these new rules became effective October 11, 2022, and will affect proxies for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2022.

The webinar will discuss the potential ramifications this disclosure may have on shareholders’ and other interested parties’ perception of the company’s compensation program and corporate governance. Participants will be provided with illustrative examples of the new disclosure requirement and other supplemental analysis, including graphic analyses of the relationship of pay and performance that may be useful in constructing their own disclosures.
