What's Next in Washington: Key Regulatory Issues for IR Professionals

August 16, 2018
2:00pm - 3:00pm Eastern Time

In this webinar, several NIRI chapter advocacy ambassadors share an update on key regulatory issues facing the IR community and discuss NIRI’s efforts to bring members’ concerns to lawmakers and regulators.

2018 is an election year, and control of Congress could change next year, so it’s especially important that public companies voice public support now for regulatory reforms that will benefit issuers, investors, and IR professionals. The panel discusses NIRI’s work with other business organizations to prod regulators to exercise greater oversight of proxy advisory firms, adopt a short-sale disclosure rule, update the shareholder proposal rules, and require greater transparency around hedge fund activism.
