Our outside directors are compensated through an annual retainer of $18,000, plus meeting fees. However, our chairman of the board, Stanley Bradshaw receives additional annual compensation of $30,000 and our vice-chairman, Lee Wielansky receives an additional $12,000 per year. On April 16, 2008, Messrs. Bradshaw and Wielansky received non-statutory stock options for 30,000 and 5,000 shares, respectively, at an exercise price of $11.25 per share. Each option vests over a five-year period beginning on the first anniversary of the date of grant and is exercisable over a ten-year period. In addition to his service on the Board of Directors, William Donius has been engaged as a consultant to the Company and receives an annual retainer. See Compensation for Named Executive Officers in 2008 for a discussion on Mr. Donius consulting arrangement.
Outside directors also participate in our equity compensation program and receive annual stock option grants. On November 3, 2008, the Board of Directors granted each outside director an annual non-statutory stock option for 4,000 shares of Company common stock at an exercise price of $7.70 per share. All director options are 100% vested as of the grant date and are exercisable over a period of ten years. The director option award is based on a target value of approximately 25% of the average board fees. In determining the level of compensation for our Board, we review director performance and peer group data, along with the financial performance of the Company. See Peer Group Analysis for a list of our peer institutions. Our Board of Directors did not receive an increase in its annual retainer or meeting fees for 2009.
