It has been more than thirty (30) years since the current shareholder voting and communications system was established. Advances in technology, increases in shareholder activism, and new regulatory requirements have created a need to modernize the corporate governance processes used by shareholders of publicly traded companies.
The Shareholder Communications Coalition is an advocacy organization dedicated to improving the ability of individual investors to vote their shares and communicate with the publicly traded companies in which they invest. In its advocacy efforts, the Coalition is working to change rules adopted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that impede these objectives. The Coalition also seeks to educate individual investors about their rights as shareholders and the importance of participating in corporate elections.
