This report outlines baseline and evolving practices for improving virtual meetings.

Business case

Newark, N.J., December 10, 2020 - A working group of public company and investor

representatives today released a report on recommended baseline

practices for virtual shareholder meetings. The report also reflects the input of a steering

committee comprised of the largest virtual shareholder meeting service providers and

prominent corporate governance leaders.


With the COVID-19 pandemic likely to curtail many in-person shareholder meetings again in

2021, the report provides valuable guidance for companies planning to host virtual meetings

next year and shareholders who want to participate more fully in those meetings. The report outlines

trending as well as evolving practices for virtual meetings and updates a 2018 report of a similar

industry committee that outlined principles and best practices for virtual shareholder meetings.
