CallidusPR worked with CSA to place the issue of proxy voting on executive remuneration on the political and public agenda by launching a PR campaign calling for (a) the separation of the correcting amendment from the consumer credit legislation and (b) the expedited passage of the correcting standalone amendment prior to the 2012 AGM season.
As a result of the campaign, the Government separated and fast-tracked the amending legislation, and on 19 June 2012, FederalParliament passed the Corporations Amendment (Proxy Voting) Act 2012.
