Board Self-Evaluation

Our board of directors conducts an annual evaluation of its overall effectiveness and the effectiveness of each committee. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, using an evaluation questionnaire administered by the General Counsel and Secretary, manages this process. The Chair of the Nominating & Governance Committee reviews the feedback and use the information to implement changes or improvements in the functioning of the board.

The evaluation process addresses subjects including, but not limited to:

•  Board structure and composition;
•  Board independence, commitment and accountability;
•  Board involvement in setting strategy and monitoring its execution;
•  Board oversight of management and involvement in management succession planning;
•  The board’s focus on the most critical issues and risks;
•  Clarity between the roles of the board and management;
•  Adequacy of access to information, employees and experts in a timely manner; and
•  The appropriateness of committee charters, and the functioning of the committees with respect to those charters.

We believe our success is fundamentally based on openness, honesty, and adherence to these core values.
