Mock Proxy Battle with Alliance Advisors 

Joint Luncheon with NIRI DFW and the Society of Corporate Secretaries and Governance Professionals

Are proxy battles talked about in the halls of your company like a mysterious specter? 

Now's your chance to shine a light on the process without the sleepless nights, working until all hours and the looming danger of losing the vote. 

On May 18, the DFW-National Investor Relations Institute and the Society of Corporate Secretaries and Governance Professionals will assemble a panel of nationally-recognized proxy and activist shareholder experts, who will marshal attendees through a blow-by-blow mock proxy battle.  They'll discuss the proxy fight process, legal implications of the challenge, institutional outreach and one-on-one calls with retail shareholders.  Attendees will leave with a well-rounded picture of what a proxy fight could look like and hear from experts with 40+ years of combined experience what it takes to "win" a proxy fight. 

 Panelists include:

Waheed Hassan, CFA, Sr. Managing Director,  Alliance Advisors

Kai Haakon Liekefett, Partner, Head of Shareholder Activism Response Team, Vinson & Elkins LLP

Ann Bruder, GC, Airlines Reporting Corp. (ARC)

Geralyn DeBusk, President, Halliburton Investor Relations

Application made for 1 Hour Texas CLE 

Due to the length of this program, we will begin promptly at 11:45.
