With the U.S. presidential primary season underway, the topic of corporate political activities is receiving even greater attention from investors. Shareholders are expected to file an unprecedented number of proposals for the 2012 proxy season that seek better disclosure of corporate contributions to candidates, contributions to "Super PACs" and other independent groups, lobbying expenses, and other political activities.
Please join ISS on Jan. 25 at 11 a.m. EST for an informative webinar on these shareholder proposals. The panelists will include:
- Bruce Freed, President, Center for Political Accountability;
- Timothy Smith, Senior Vice President, Walden Asset Management; and
- John Keenan, Corporate Governance Analyst, American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees.
