A Mock Proxy Battle

In two weeks, check out this “Mock Proxy Battle” Conference being held in DC (co-hosted by the NIRI and Society of Corporate Secretary’s local chapters). The morning session of the conference features the mock proxy battle in which you play the role of a board member of a firm facing a nasty proxy fight. Here’s the letter from the activist shareholder. The afternoon session includes a series of panel discussions that will delve into the key themes surrounding shareholder activism and feature leading experts as well as corporate executives who have been involved in activist campaigns.
