Governance Gavel Awards

CCGG introduced the Governance Gavel Awards in 2005 to recognize excellence in shareholder communications by issuers through their annual proxy circulars. In identifying nominees for a Governance Gavel award, CCGG considers those issuers with whom a board engagement was conducted during CCGG’s most recent engagement season. CCGG members also may nominate an issuer for an award.
