Designing an effective executive compensation program is often a critical component of successfully executing your business objectives. Recent sweeping changes to the federal income tax laws, as well as the growing expectations of institutional shareholders and their advisors, can make this task a challenge, even for the most experienced professionals.

In this practical webinar, you will learn the most pressing issues impacting the strategic design of executive pay and incentive programs. Among other things, you will learn about:

  • The executive compensation changes resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, including the revisions to the deduction limit for Section 162(m)
  • Lessons from the 2018 proxy season on Say-on-Pay, executive compensation disclosure, and equity compensation plan proposals
  • The results from the first year of the new CEO pay ratio disclosure requirement
  • Current strategies for shareholder outreach and engagement
  • The expanding scope of executive compensation recovery (“clawback”) provisions
  • The heightened scrutiny and the current litigation environment for director compensation

Upon course completion, you will be able to:

  • Evaluate whether (and how) to revise your incentive compensation plans for the new world of Section 162(m)
  • Enhance your executive compensation disclosure to tell your “story” while meeting the expectations of regulators and investors
  • Prepare a compliant CEO pay ratio disclosure
  • Implement an effective shareholder engagement policy
  • Minimize the litigation risks to your director compensation program

Extremely thorough!

What is a webinar?

A webinar is simply a seminar that you attend online. You either watch a live video feed of the speaker or listen to the speaker through your computer, tablet or phone’s audio.  You see the speaker’s slides, videos, and other presentation materials on your screen.

Can I ask questions during the webinar?

Yes. During the live webinar, you may submit questions and comments and the speaker will respond verbally. For a recorded webinar, your questions will be emailed to the speaker. You will typically receive a response from the speaker within two business days.

Can I attend using a tablet or smartphone?

Yes. You may attend a webinar using a computer, tablet or smartphone.

If I can’t attend a webinar live, can I view the recording later?

Yes. Shortly after each live program ends, we send all webinar registrants a link to the webinar recording. You can view the recording as many times as you like after the live webinar for up to 12 months.

What is an on-demand webinar?

An on-demand webinar is a previously recorded webinar that you may view at any time after your purchase for up to 12 months.

Can I stop a recorded webinar and start it later at the same point?

You can stop a recording and later log back in and navigate to any point in the webinar. The system will not force you to view the entire recording from start to finish.

Can I listen to recorded webinars on a tablet or smartphone?

Yes. You will be able to listen to any of our on-demand webinars on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Is there a deadline to register for a webinar?

You can register for a live webinar up until the time the webinar begins.

Am I able to pay by check or through a Purchase Order?

Yes. Register normally and choose the “pay by check” option. We will then email you an invoice. You can email any Purchase Order numbers to us.

Can I view the webinar even if Clear Law Institute has not yet received my check?

If you are paying by check or using a Purchase Order, you may view the live or recorded webinar even if we have not yet received payment.

To complete the payment process, what if I need Clear Law Institute’s W-9 or vendor registration forms completed?

If you need any additional forms or information to complete the payment process, please call us at 703-372-0550 or contact us.

I have not received an email with instructions on accessing the webinar.  What should I do?

Please check your spam folder as the instructions email may have ended up there. You can also access the webinar by logging into your account and clicking on “Attend Webinar.” If you still cannot locate the Event URL, please call us at 703-372-0550 or contact us and we will make sure you receive the instructions immediately.

Do the webinars qualify for Continuing Education Credit?

Almost all of our webinars are approved for continuing education credit, including CLE (in all states), CCB, CPE, HRCI, IRS and SHRM credit.  Unlike many providers, we don’t charge you any additional fee to process your credit.  If you have specific questions, please call us at 703-372-0550 or contact us.

Can I still receive Continuing Education Credits if I view the webinar recording instead of the live presentation?

In most cases, the answer is yes. Recorded webinars are not eligible for CLE credit in the following states: AR, KS, MS, NE, and RI. In all other jurisdictions, recorded programs are eligible for credit. In addition, CPE credit is not available for recorded webinars. Please note that recorded webinars are only eligible for a certain period of time based on the jurisdiction. To ask about your specific type of Continuing Education Credit or the requirements in your jurisdiction, please call us at 703-372-0550 or contact us.

Will I receive a certificate of completion after the course?

Yes. A certificate of completion will automatically be uploaded to your Clear Law Institute account after completing the live or on-demand webinar.

Do I need to be a member to receive a certificate of completion?

No. An account will automatically be created for you when registering for a webinar. You will then be able to access your certificate of completion after completing a webinar.

How do I determine my states’s CLE requirements.

Please find your state listed here with instructions for calculating the number of credits in your state.

How will I submit my attendance to receive CLE credit in my state?

Please find your state listed here with instructions for confirming your CLE attendance.

What can I find in my Clear Law Institute account?

All of this information will be kept in your account so that you can easily track your webinar registrations and continuing education credits.

I downloaded my certificate of completion, but it doesn’t have my continuing education information listed on it.
