In a Xtalks Web Conference on Friday, July 28, 2006, from 11:00am – 1:00pm EDT., Mike McCauley, Director Office of Corporate Governance and Investment Communications, Florida State Board of Administration, Peter R. Gleason, COO & Director or Research, National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), Cynthia Richson, Corporate Governance Officer, Ohio Public Employees Retirement System (OPERS), and David S. Landau, CPA, President & CEO, DLA will discuss how the Sarbanes-Oxley Act is of crucial concern in the movement towards better and more stringent corporate governance.
Realizing the Potential of Corporate Governance in Today’s Environment
The unprecedented number of corporate scandals, financial restatements, and bankruptcies has led to increased governmental and shareholder interest in corporate governance, culminating in the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. SOX established a new regulatory system for auditors of publicly-traded companies and made the most significant changes in the laws governing the responsibilities of directors, officers and corporate transparency obligations.
Corporate Governance initiatives enable institutional investors to better manage risk by including corporate governance criteria as part of the investment process. Effective corporate governance practices lead to greater long-term shareholder value.
Join this live, interactive web conference as our panel of experts analyzes how companies are maximizing the value in today’s environment by improving corporate governance. Hear corporate governance experts explore how SOX plays a critical role establishing new corporate requirements in executive and director’s compensation, internal audit and accounting, and composition/functions of the board of directors.
The Corporate Governance and SOX Web Conference will take place on Friday, July 28, 2006, from 11:00am – 1:00pm EDT.
