Since the introduction of Dodd-Frank, Bank Director’s Bank Executive & Board Compensation Conference has become a must-attend event for a bank’s compensation committee members, human resource officers and the senior management team.
This year’s 9th annual event focused on compensation trends, talent acquisition/attraction and retention strategies. In addition, it looked at how the next few years’ merger activity might influence incentive compensation plans and performance-based pay structures.

The country’s top compensation advisers offered practical approaches for members of the board to tackle short and long-term incentive plan design, risk assessment requirements, talent retention strategies, change-in-control agreements and other regulatory implications for compensation. Also, attendees had the opportunity to learn from knowledgeable bank officers and board members with firsthand experience on today’s compensation challenges.
