Tax Reform and Cybersecurity Among Top Issues at 2018 Shareholder Meetings According to BDO USA

Business Wire (March 7) is reporting that BDO USA, LLP, one of America's leading accounting and advisory firms, has compiled a list of topics that corporate boards of directors should be prepared to address at their upcoming annual shareholder meetings. Among them is limits on board seats. National Association of Corporate Directors research shows that public company directors spend an average of 245 hours a year on their board duties and responsibilities -- a time commitment that continues to grow. "Given this trend," BDO states, "companies should consider limiting the number of boards on which their directors may serve." Other topics that will likely be on the front burner include: CEO/median employee pay ratio, board refreshment and diversity, executive misconduct, and cybersecurity.
