The D&O Diary was on assignment this week at the PLUS D&O Symposium. As reflected the accompanying picture of Times Square, the weather in New York was uncharacteristically sunny and warm for this time of year. The Symposium itself was also superlative; the event was surprisingly well-attended and the sessions were great. My congratulations to the event co-chairs, and to the PLUS staff and volunteer leadership for another successful event.
The highlight of the event for me was having the privilege of moderating the Securities Litigation Update panel, which as it turned out was the event’s final panel. I always feel that if I am having fun when I am doing a panel that it must be going pretty well, and this panel was a lot of fun.
One of the things I particularly liked about this year’s version of the PLUS D&O Symposium was the significant number of international attendees. I enjoyed the chance to meet so many of our professional colleagues from outside the U.S.
