Committee Composition

In 2016, the Board of Directors held six regular meetings and two special meetings.  The independent directors met eight times in executive session without any officer of the Company present.  In 2016, each director attended 96% or more of the total number of meetings of the Board and the Committees on which the director served, and overall attendance at such meetings was over 98%.  The Company encourages its directors to attend the annual meeting of the shareholders, and it has been their practice to do so.  

The Board has five standing Committees:  Audit, Management Development and Compensation, Corporate Governance, Public Policy and Corporate Responsibility and Executive.  The Board may from time to time form new Committees, disband an existing Committee and delegate additional responsibilities to a Committee.  The responsibilities of the Committees are set forth in written charters, which are reviewed periodically by the Committees and, where appropriate, the Corporate Governance Committee and the Board.  All of the charters are available on the Company’s investor relations website at or by selecting Charters and Documents from the left-side navigation menu.
