The selection of strong Board members will be critical for successful governance. The Nominating and Corporate Governance (NCG) Committee will assist the Board in carrying out its responsibilities by reviewing corporate governance and nomination issues and making recommendations to the Board as appropriate. All of the NCG Committee members will be independent.
One responsibility of the NGC Committee pursuant to the NCG Committee Mandate will be to identify individuals qualified to become Board members and recommend potential new Board members.
The NCG Committee will seek to ensure the Board has a sufficient range of skills, expertise and experience to allow the Board to carry out its mandate and functions effectively. The NCG Committee will receive and evaluate suggestions for candidates from individual directors, the Chief Executive Officer and from professional search organizations.
