Virtual Annual Meetings and Shareholder Forums

In Webcasting News by David Kovalcik

Annual meetings and shareholder forums often come with high cost and low participation. Many companies are now turning to video and audio webcasting technology as the best-practices solution for more effectively managing shareholder engagement while containing meeting costs. Webcasting technology enables your shareholders to attend meetings, vote, ask questions and answer surveys in a secure online environment.

Increase Engagement Using a Virtual Shareholder Forum

Virtual meetings/forums are an efficient way to boost shareholder participation without the expense and inconvenience of traveling.
