June 9, 2011 - PRLog -- Redwood City, Calif. – The nation’s single largest gathering of executive compensation professionals, with over 350 attendees, will take place at Equilar’s 2011 Executive Compensation Summit, presented by E*TRADE  Corporate Services. The Summit will be held on June 14 and 15, 2011, at the La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, CA (San Diego County).

“We’re very excited to present our third-annual Summit,” said David Chun, Equilar founder and CEO. “As in previous years, we’ve been able to assemble a dynamic group of speakers, ranging from industry leaders to consultants to academics, who will share their insights into the challenges facing compensation professionals today.”

The two-day conference is of particular interest in the wake of shake-ups in the field in late 2010, with the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act poised to affect executive compensation for years to come.

“E*TRADE is pleased to be the title sponsor of the Executive Compensation Summit,” said Jim Wulforst , President of E*TRADE Financial Corporate Services, LLC. “Now more than ever, executive compensation is top-of-mind for companies of all sizes, and we’re glad to help drive that conversation forward.”

The first day of the conference will be a General Session, with numerous panels exploring the Dodd-Frank Act, say-on-pay legislation, corporate governance, pay for performance, and the 2011 proxy season. The first day’s speakers will include principals of numerous compensation-consulting firms, academics from Stanford and Cornell, and top executives in corporate compensation departments.

The conference’s second day will divide into two tracks:

•   For seasoned leaders: Exclusive industry-specific roundtables will be held in the morning, and issue-based roundtables in the afternoon, allowing professionals to discuss and get answers to their most pressing exec comp questions.

•   For mid-level professionals: In the morning, this group will be offered a comprehensive training course in the use of Equilar products. That afternoon, professionals will participate in WorldatWork’s “How to Work with the Compensation Committee and Your Shareholders” workshop, which features speakers from Intel, JCPenney, Starbucks, and Pfizer. The workshop will outline the key basics needed to attract, motivate, and retain strong employees with the support of the Board of Directors.
