The growing involvement of investor relations in corporate governance matters is a trend, which received a significant boost by the passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in 2010. Upshots from Dodd-Frank include shareholders seeking more direct board access and a greater influence on governance matters. Boards will rely more on IR for insight into their shareholders. Those IR professionals not currently involved must become part of their corporate governance process. IR practitioners not currently doing so should seek to begin direct, regular reporting to boards of directors.
To assist members with their growing governance needs, NIRI developed this Governance Resource page consisting of:
1. Select resources concerning corporate governance, proxy voting, and IR/board communications. Please also visit NIRI's Presentation and Report Library to access links to NIRI reports and third-party materials on corporate governance and proxy advisors.
2. NIRI's Sample Document Library, which includes sample governance guidelines, a Compensation Disclosure & Analysis template, and other materials to help you prepare for your annual meeting.
3. The NIRI Peer Governance Network of experienced NIRI members that have volunteered to share their governance insight and expertise with other members. Please feel free to contact members of this network with governance-related questions.
4. The NIRI Corporate Governance eGroup for members to interact around governance issues. NIRI members may join this eGroup to participate in governance-related discussions, share resources and network with other NIRI member colleagues.
