Forum Announces New Board Leadership

On March 3, 2010, the Forum announced that Jameson A. Baxter has been elected as the Forum's new board chair.  David S. Ruder, one of the founders of the Forum, will step down from his position as Chairman, and will remain on the organization's board as Chairman Emeritus.  Ms. Baxter is an independent trustee on the Putnam Funds board, where she serves as Vice-Chairman.  She also has served as President of Baxter Associates, Inc. since 1986.  Prior to that, Ms. Baxter held senior positions in the investment banking industry.

Ms. Baxter has served on the Forum's board since 2004, and has chaired the Forum's audit committee,  participated actively and enthusiastically in the Forum's programs and events, and provided vital insights and strategic vision to the Forum's comment letters and practical guidance publications.
