The Acting Director General of Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Mary Uduk will deliver the keynote address at the Issuers and Investors Alternative Dispute Resolution Initiative (IIADRI) maidem symposium tagged: ENHANCING SHAREHOLDERS VALUE THROUGH STRONGER AND COORDINATED SHAREHOLDER ASSOCIATIONS: WHY AND HOW?
This maiden Symposium scheduled for Thursday, March 7, 2019 at the Lagos Chambers of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) Exhibition Centre, 10, Nurudeen Olowopopo Road, Alausa.CBD by 9am is borne out of a near absence of a coordinating entity saddled with the responsibility of streamlining the roles and importance of all stakeholders towards achieving the best outcome from the Annual General Meetings (AGMs) and lack of in-depth understanding of the synergy required to achieve such a desirable outcome.
Hence the Theme: AGM OPTIMIZATION; THE ROLES OF THE COMPANY SECRETARIES, REGULATORS, REGISTRARS, SHAREHOLDERS ASSOCIATIONS AND OTHER STAKEHOLDERS.
MS. Daisy Ekineh, a former Commissioner and one time acting DG of Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC], will be the guest speaker at the special capital market event which promises to titillate and educate investors and financialsector stakeholders of various hues on the way forward.
Discussants will be drawn from Institute of Secretaries, Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), Institute of Directors, Institute of Capital Market Registrars, Stanbic IBTC Nominees Limited, Shareholder Associations etc.
The expectation is that robust discussions on the Keynote address and on the Theme of the symposium by the assembled experts will unearth the critical roles of each Stakeholder in the AGM value chain with the view of enhancing performances as well as highlighting ways of achieving an excellent AGM OPTIMIZATION.
The target audience at this symposium cuts across the entire AGM value chain which includes but not limited to The Registrars, Regulators, Corporate bodies, Auditors and Members of the Shareholder Associations, as well as the investing public (Non-members of Shareholder Associations).
According to the Secretary of IIADRI ,Sebastian Udoh the hope is that after the event the capital market would become a haven of peace and progress
