Compensation Committee Charter Tool

By NACD Staff


Compensation Committee Committee Charter

In brief: Compensation committee charters are required for companies listed on the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq. This toolkit lists the minimum compensation committee charter requirements of each exchange and describes a process for updating compensation committee charters.

Its appendices list typical compensation committee charter subject headings. The appendices also provide examples of charter language that goes beyond the exchange-mandated areas.

This resource can help your compensation committee to

  • draft an initial compensation committee charter,
  • update an existing compensation committee charter, and
  • ensure compliance with stock exchange requirements.

Most relevant audiences: compensation committee members and chairs, general counsel, and corporate secretary
