Governance and Nominating Committee Charter


      The Governance and Nominating Committee is appointed by the Board of Directors to identify individuals qualified to become Board members and oversee the Company’s corporate governance principles.

Committee Membership

      Within one year of the date the Committee is established, the Committee will be composed entirely of directors who satisfy the definition of “independent” under the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). The Committee members will be appointed by the Board and may be removed by the Board in its discretion. The Committee shall have the authority to delegate any of its responsibilities to subcommittees as the Committee may deem appropriate, provided the subcommittees are composed entirely of independent directors.


      The Committee shall meet as often as its members deem necessary to perform the Committee’s responsibilities.

Committee Authority and Responsibilities

      The Committee will have the authority, to the extent it deems necessary or appropriate, to retain a search firm to be used to identify director candidates. The Committee shall have sole authority to retain and terminate any such search firm, including sole authority to approve the firm’s fees and other retention terms. The Committee shall also have authority, to the extent it deems necessary or appropriate, to retain other advisors. The Company will provide for appropriate funding, as determined by the Committee, for payment of compensation to any search firm or other advisors employed by the Committee.

      The Committee will make regular reports to the Board and will propose any necessary action to the Board. The Committee will review and reassess the adequacy of this charter annually and recommend any proposed changes to the Board for approval. The Committee will annually evaluate the Committee’s own performance.
