Threats to Shareholder Rights and SEC Rule 14a-8

The SEC is considering changes to Rule 14a-8, the process that determines shareholder access to corporate proxies. These changes would make the filing of resolutions more onerous for investors. 

In response, ICCR has joined together with the Investor Rights ForumCERES, the Council of Institutional Investors, US SIF, PRI, and other stakeholders to defend shareholder rights. Together, we are pressing key decision makers to preserve Rule 14a-8 in its present form, as the most effective and efficient means for shareholders to communicate with boards of directors, corporate management, and their fellow shareholders.
