Candidates may come to the attention of the Nomination Committee through current Board members, professional search firms, stockholders or other persons. The Nomination Committee evaluates all candidates selected for consideration, including incumbent directors, based on the same criteria as described above. All candidates who, after evaluation, are then recommended by the Nomination and Corporate Governance Committee and approved by the Board, are included in the Companys recommended slate of director nominees in its proxy statement.
