Principles and Best Practices for Virtual Annual Shareowner Meetings

When companies opt for virtual participation in shareowner meetings, it is important that they are accessible, transparent, efficient and cost-effective, while still meeting the important business and corporate governance needs of shareowners, boards and management.

This timely white paper is presented by the Best Practices Committee for Shareowner Participation in Virtual Annual Meetings, a committee of interested constituents, comprised of retail and institutional investors, public company representatives, and proxy and legal service providers who have been discussing best practices for virtual shareowner participation in annual meetings — with a view toward ensuring that the needs of all constituents are met in a fair and well-balanced manner.
