CII Members Approve Policy Amendment on Board Service

At CII’s fall 2022 conference in Boston, U.S. Asset Owner Members overwhelmingly approved an amendment to Section 2.11 of CII’s corporate governance policies that recommends directors who are employed full-time by a for-profit corporation should serve on no more than two for-profit boards. The policy amendment also seeks a limit of four for-profit boards for directors who are not employed full time, whereas CII’s previous policy allowed these directors to serve on up to five boards. The amendment also requests that companies disclose all for-profit board memberships for each director, and that nominating and governance committees develop and publicly disclose their policies on board service.
