Executive Compensation: Evolving Trends and Best Practices

Thursday, May 22, 2014 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


The past year has seen several new developments in executive compensation at the state level.  The Non-Profit Organizations/Public Charities Division of the Attorney General’s office issued a CEO Compensation Review, based on a survey of 25 of the largest public charities in Massachusetts. More recently, the Attorney General’s office brought suit against the CEO of a Massachusetts graduate school and entered into an Assurance of Discontinuation agreement with the school’s board of trustees, both focused on executive compensation.

Many charitable organizations have adopted best practices in executive compensation with an eye towards obtaining a federal rebuttable presumption that the compensation is not an “excess benefit.”  What are those best practices?  Are they still adequate in Massachusetts?  Where might they be headed?

Join us for a discussion of the Attorney General’s report and its possible impact, led by the Senior Vice President and Senior Counsel of Boston University (one of the survey respondents), and a general discussion of best practices in non-profit executive compensation.
