Section: CII Governance Alert
The CII Board of Directors has named 15 representatives of non-voting member organizations to the new CII Advisory Council (see below). The purpose of the Advisory Council is to provide input on CII activities on corporate governance and ways to enhance the value of membership. Creation of the Advisory Council reflects the growing involvement of asset managers in corporate governance.
The board faced a tough task: More than 40 highly qualified representatives of Educational Sustainer and Honorary International Participants sent in nominations. One of the Advisory Council’s priorities will be to reach out to all non-voting members and provide recommendations about ways to enhance their involvement in our organization.
The Advisory Council will hold its first in-person meeting on April 17 just before the start of the CII spring conference in Washington, D.C. CII directors and Advisory Council members will meet for an informal lunch before the meeting. Advisory Council members serve one-year terms.
