Compensation Committee Chair Advisory Council

Compensation Committee Chair Advisory Council

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.
