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