This afternoon, Walmart wrapped up its annual meeting in Arkansas. For us, the highlight of the spectacle was OUR Walmart member Jackie Goebel’s presentation of shareholder proposal #6, calling for greater disclosure about incentive pay. Jackie submitted the proposal with fellow OUR Walmart members, associates, and shareholders Mary Tifft, Girshriela Green, and Carlton Smith.
Tomorrow, Walmart shareholders will gather at the Bud Walton Arena at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville for the company’s annual meeting, beginning at 7AM CDT. These meetings have grown to be star-studded events, but industry watchers will look past the celebrity emcee and performers and watch as the board of directors, executives, and company practices come under scrutiny by shareholders.
