May 25, 2016 -- Mayflower Hotel, Washington, D.C.

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 13, 2016) -  Darla Stuckey, President and CEO of the Society of Corporate Secretaries & Governance Professionals, will moderate a panel at the Compliance Week Conference to be held from May 23 - 25 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. The three-day conference will bring together compliance, risk, and audit executives from corporations around the world. Included will be keynote speakers, concurrent panel discussions and presentations, plus small-room "conversation" sessions to deliver high-quality content.

Stuckey will moderate the panel "Directors and Conflicts of Interest: A Governance Update" on May 25, 2016 from 9:45 AM to 10:45 AM.

The panelists include:

  • Joseph Amsbary, Assistant Secretary and Securities Counsel - United Parcel Service
  • Keir Gumbs, Vice Chair, Securities and Capital Markets Practice Group - Covington and Burling

"With more transparency being demanded by institutional shareholders and the increase in activist campaigns for board seats, effective governance is a critical factor. But the changing dynamics in the boardroom can create unique challenges including conflicts of interest," Stuckey said. "How can boards continue to serve all stakeholders of the corporation? This session will cover all this and more: from golden leashes to pay-ratio rules, activist directors and individual director accountability. Come prepared for a robust discussion!"
