The Center for Corporate Governance invites you to join us for our annual Academic Conference on Corporate Governance. The conference features theoretical and empirical research related to corporate governance with a slight preference to the conference honoree. Each year the conference honors a researcher with an award for outstanding contributions to research in corporate governance and invites them to present the keynote speech during the conference. This year’s conference honoree is Laura T. Starks, Dean ad interim and Charles E. and Sarah M. Seay Regents Chair in Finance at the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin. Previous recipients were Jonathan Karpoff, Michael Jensen, Rene Stulz, Andrei Shleifer, Steven Kaplan, Harold Demsetz, Kevin Murphy and Michael Weisbach.

We are also delighted to announce Nance Dicciani, Founder and CEO, RTM Vital Signs, LLC, and Director of LyondellBasell Industries NV, Halliburton Company, AgroFresh Solutions Inc., and Praxair Inc.as the keynote speaker at our conference welcome dinner on Thursday April 14.
