The Bank Compensation Workshop provides an up-to-the minute, hands-on, interactive overview for compensation committee members and HROs.  The objectives of the pre-conference workshop are to equip participants to perform effectively and sustainably in their roles, to provide confidence in the execution of their duties and to provide all attendees with context in order to maximize their overall conference experience.

Bank Compensation Workshop Registration & Lunch

12:30 PM – 12:40 PM

12:40 PM – 1:40 PM
Session I: Common Executive Compensation Challenges & Hot Topics
During this interactive session, we discuss current trends and best practices in executive compensation around incentive plan design and performance measure selection, the current status of the Dodd-Frank compensation-related regulations as well as broader issues such as shareholder engagement, pay equity and diversity and inclusion.  This session also covers common challenges and issues including aligning pay and performance, clawbacks, compensation philosophy and peer group selection, goal setting, attraction and retention, preparing for terminations and alternatives for increasing employee stock ownership.  

1:40 PM – 2:40 PM 
Session II: Director Compensation, Litigation & Shareholder Advisory Policies
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 when setting compensation for their directors.  This session shares information from compensation surveys and public company disclosures, as well as ISS policy and recent court cases covering director pay litigation.  We explore ways to reduce risk and mitigate excessive director pay. 

2:40 PM – 2:55 PM 
Refreshment Break

2:55 PM – 3:55 PM 
Session III: Charters, Calendars, Minutes, Evaluations, Program Documentation & Succession Planning
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.

3:55 PM – 4:00 PM 
Explain Peer Collaboration Process

4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Session IV: Peer Collaboration
In response to the evaluations from last year’s Workshop, we added some much requested time to collaborate with your peers.  Spend this time in off-the-record discussions with attendees that are most similar to you, based on title, type of institution and size of bank. 

5:00 PM – 6:00 PM
