Council of Institutional Investors


The Council of Institutional Investors' committees provide members with opportunities to get involved and engage with other members on a variety of issues. Additional information on each committee is available in our Members Dashboard.

Policies Committee
The Policies Committee is comprised of the non-officer members of CII's Board of Directors. The committee reviews, maintains and updates CII policies on corporate governance and other issues. CII corporate governance policies set standards or recommend practices that members believe companies and boards of directors should adopt to promote accountability, independence, integrity, rigor and transparency. The Policies Committee proposes policies to the full board for its approval. All CII policies must be approved by the U.S. Asset Owner Members. For more information, contact staff liaison Glenn Davis.

Chair: Ron Baker, Colorado Public Employees’ Retirement Association
