NACD convenes four distinct Fortune 500 Advisory Councils for chairs of the following committees:
In support of a sustainable, profitable, and thriving corporate America, the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) created the Compensation Committee Chair Advisory Council. Since 2011 this council has brought experienced compensation committee chairs from Fortune 500 companies together with key shareholder representatives, regulators, and other stakeholders to discuss ways to strengthen corporate governance in general and the work of the compensation committee in particular.
Farient Advisors LLC collaborates with NACD in convening and leading this council.
Meetings and teleconferences are conducted under a modified version of the Chatham House Rule to maintain an environment for candid dialogue. No outside media is present at advisory council meetings. All delegates participate on their own behalf.
There is no cost associated with council participation other than travel expenses.
Conversation is ongoing, punctuated by semi-annual meetings, typically from 8:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., in Washington, D.C. or New York City. Debrief conference calls for non-attending delegates follow each in-person meeting.

*This list of recent participants is representative, not comprehensive. Delegates participate on their own behalf, and listed companies correspond to delegates' compensation committee chair roles. Council rosters are subject to change.
"The content and pacing kept everyone completely engaged throughout the day. The outside presenters were topical and most informative. The quality of the director participants was absolutely first rate. It is so much more productive to participate in a program with experienced directors."
-Roger Vincent, Audit Committee Chair, UGI Corp.
NACD believes that the dialogue facilitated by the four advisory councils is vital to advancing the shared, overarching goal of all boards, investors, and regulators: a sustainable, profitable, and thriving corporate America.
