Membership and Appointment
The Committee shall comprise not fewer than two members of the Board of Directors, as shall be determined from time to time by the Board of Directors based on recommendations from the Board Nominating and Governance Committee, if any.
The members of the Committee shall be appointed by the Board of Directors upon the recommendation of the Board Nominating and Governance Committee.
The entire Committee or any individual Committee member may be removed from office without cause by the affirmative vote of a majority of the Board of Directors. Any Committee member may resign effective upon giving oral or written notice to the Chairman of the Board of Directors, the Corporate Secretary or the Board of Directors (unless the notice specifies a later time for the effectiveness of such resignation). If the resignation of a Committee member is effective at a future time, the Board of Directors may elect a successor to take office when the resignation becomes effective.
A chairperson of the Committee (the "Chairperson") may be designated by the Board of Directors based upon recommendations by the Board Nominating and Governance Committee, if any. In the absence of such designation, the members of the Committee may designate the Chairperson by majority vote of the full Committee membership. The Chairperson shall determine the agenda, the frequency and the length of meetings and shall have unlimited access to management and information. The Chairperson shall establish such other rules as may from time to time be necessary and proper for the conduct of the business of the Committee.
The Committee may appoint a Secretary whose duties and responsibilities shall be to keep full and complete records of the proceedings of the Committee for the purposes of reporting Committee activities to the Board of Directors and to perform all other duties as may from time to time be assigned to him or her by the Committee, or otherwise at the direction of a Committee member. The Secretary need not be a Director.
Each member shall meet the objective test of "independence" which has been established by the Board of Directors, or in the absence of such test, the Board of Directors shall make an individual determination that such Director is independent within the meaning of any applicable law or any listing standard or rule established by the New York Stock Exchange and applicable to the Committee. In addition, each member shall qualify as an "outside director" as such term is defined in section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (as amended) and the regulations promulgated thereunder or any successor provisions thereto, and as a "non-employee director" as such term is defined in section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, or any successor provisions thereto.
The Committee may, by resolution passed by a majority of the Committee, designate one or more subcommittees, each subcommittee to consist of one or more members of the Committee. Any such subcommittee to the extent provided in the resolutions of the Committee and to the extent not limited by applicable law or listing standard, shall have and may exercise all the powers and authority of the Committee. Each subcommittee shall have such name as may be determined from time to time by resolution adopted by the Committee. Each subcommittee shall keep regular minutes of its meetings and report the same to the Committee or the Board of Directors when required.
