|5064||Mechanics of Shareholder Voting||30||Feb||2:00PM||3:00PM||February||Wednesday||16||2011||
Edward Pittman of the Dechert law firm discusses the mechanics of the proxy system. He outlines how issuers communicate with shareholders, how votes are solicited, cast, and recorded, and the role various intermediaries play in the proxy process.
This conversation is particularly timely as the SEC is in the process of undertaking a broad review of the entire U.S. proxy system, in an effort to determine whether it can be improved upon in order to promote greater efficiency and transparency in the system.
The event was broadcast live from 2:00 to 3:00 Eastern time on Wednesday, February 16.
