What are appropriate pay levels for board members?  How do pay levels compare for private vs. public company board members?  Privately-held and family-owned businesses lack such data to benchmark against in setting compensation for their directors.  Practices are summarized based on CAP’s 2019 Private Company Board of Director compensation survey and public company disclosure.  This session also covers ISS policy and recent court cases covering director pay litigation.  We explore ways to reduce risk and mitigate excessive director pay.

While these topics may be seen as administrative tasks, when used correctly, they can enhance the effectiveness of committees and also provide protection for board members. This session shares pitfalls and best practices to help your bank's committees and human resources department function better while improving compensation governance.  We also cover which board committee is responsible for management succession planning and how often it should be discussed throughout the year.

11:25 AM - 12:00 PM
Bank Compensation Workshop Session IV: Open Discussion
Once the stated topics have been discussed, we open the conversation to the audience to bring up those issues that they still have on their minds. This is a time for everyone to get involved in the conversation!
