    Institutional investors are reminded every proxy season how uncontested director elections may at times feel tedious and routine. Yet casting these votes is perhaps the single greatest manifestation of shareholder rights. And as the ability to vote against incumbents becomes a market-wide norm, outcomes take on more than symbolic meaning.

    Currently few measures of director performance, aside from attending three-quarters of the previous year’s meetings, appear to sway most elections. This two-hour program will explore various avenues for investors, as well as boards themselves, to augment basic quantitative measures with less obvious, not necessarily formulaic, and sometimes wholly qualitative considerations surrounding director performance.
