Board of Directors
Our board of directors is composed of individuals who, on the basis of their knowledge and experience, make valuable contributions to the overall conduct of the business. The nominating and governance committee is responsible for developing and recommending board membership criteria to the board for approval and periodically reviewing these criteria. Board candidates, including incumbent directors, are considered based upon various criteria, including their broad-based business skills and experience in relevant areas critical to our business, prominence and reputation in their professions, global business and social perspective, concern for the long-term interests of stockholders, and personal integrity and judgment. In addition to the board and committees' conducting self evaluations on an annual basis, the nominating and governance committee reviews general qualifications and expertise of each board member on at least an annual basis.
