Earlier today, Jeff Morgan, president of the National Investor Relations Institute (the IR professional organization), spoke to our local chapter. His presentation titled Financial and Regulatory Reform and other Critical IR Issues was a thought-provoking look at relevant items under consideration by Congress and the SEC.
He sees a high likelihood that all companies (not just the big “Wall Street” financial institutions) will be facing a myriad of governance and other changes by fall. Many of the expected changes have a direct bearing on the way investor relations is practiced, making the function even more critical. This is a topic on which I know I’ll be spending more time in coming weeks.
Thanks to Jeff for making time to visit Cincinnati and share his insight.
