How often did the Board meet in 2007?
The Board held six regular meetings and 5 special meetings in 2007. Each director, except Mr. Ridge, attended at least 86% of all of the meetings of the Board and committees of the Board on which he or she served (during the period he or she served) in 2007. Mr. Ridge missed one of the two meetings held during the time he was a director due to a scheduling conflict that existed prior to his becoming a member of our Board on November 11, 2007. Average attendance for all of these meetings equaled 96%.
