Board Meetings

The Board of Directors will hold at least six meetings each year.  Additional meetings may be called in accordance with the Company’s Bylaws. The Chairman of the Board, taking into consideration suggestions from the Presiding Director and other members of the Board, will set the agenda for each Board meeting, and will distribute the agenda, along with any other relevant materials, in advance to each Director. If appropriate, the Chairman of the Board and CEO will determine the individual Employees or advisors who need to attend or present material at each meeting.   The Board acknowledges that certain items to be discussed at Board meetings are of an extremely sensitive nature and that the distribution of materials on these matters prior to Board meetings may not be appropriate.
