The Company encourages its directors to attend educational seminars and conferences to enhance his or her knowledge of the role and responsibilities of directors. Any director who attends an educational seminar or conference may receive reimbursement from RTI for the costs incurred in connection with his or her attendance. Four directors attended director education seminars or programs during 2008, two of which were accredited by the RiskMetrics Group. Educational presentations are also made at Board meetings from time to time.
