Key Issues for Board Committee Governance

Committees of the boards of directors of US public companies are responsible for critical aspects of corporate governance and empowered to take action directly and/or to make recommendations to the full board of directors on their designated areas of oversight. In particular, the nominating and corporate governance committee, compensation committee and audit committee—typically comprised of independent directors—perform crucial governance functions. Each of these committees currently faces many areas of importance.

Please join Mayer Brown lawyers James Carlson, Bob Gray and Laura Richman as they discuss current issues impacting the deliberations of the nominating and corporate governance committee, the compensation committee and the audit committee. Among the key topics to be discussed:

  • Board composition, including tenure, diversity and performance evaluation issues
  • Compensation committee involvement with shareholder engagement on pay
  • Expanded audit committee engagement with auditors
