Corporate Board Member, an NYSE Euronext Company, and Equilar Inc. are joining
together to provide a first-in-class conference focusing on the most pressing
compensation issues facing today’s public companies. The Compensation
Committee Boot Camp will be held January 24-25 in Miami, Florida.

The event will include a first-rate speaker line-up with many well-regarded
industry leaders who will speak on topics such as investors’ expectations
regarding compensation, trends and fundamentals of effective CEO pay,
communicating compensation strategy to investors and the media, and much more.

    Airlines Co.

“Between say on pay and resulting litigation and an overall focus on pay
packages and governance, the compensation committee is the hottest seat on the
board right now. The goal of the Boot Camp is to provide participants a better
understanding of their roles, responsibilities, and legal requirements in
tackling executive compensation issues,” said TK Kerstetter, chairman of
Corporate Board Member. “Presented by the nation’s most respected compensation
information provider and the leading board education resource, we believe no
other compensation event can deliver as robust an agenda to help directors and
HR executives adequately evaluate and implement the most appropriate pay

The Compensation Committee Boot Camp will also feature peer collaboration
sessions where attendees will gather in small peer groups for a unique
opportunity to brainstorm, network, and share insights on critical issues
around short- and long-term incentives and other key pay factors. Event
sponsors include Meridian Compensation Partners, Pay Governance, Semler
Brossy, and Compensation Advisory Partners. Upon conclusion of the event,
attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a live webinar on board
