Our primary goal is to provide competitive and reasonable compensation to directors in order to attract and retain qualified candidates to serve on our Board. We utilize a combination of cash and stock to compensate our directors. In establishing compensation for independent directors, we consult such resources as The National Association of Corporate Directors Director Compensation Report, among others. As part of our corporate governance guidelines, directors are subject to a minimum Common Stock ownership requirement. Within four years after joining the Board, each independent director is required to own 25,000 shares of our Common Stock.
