Board of Directors
Personnel and Organization Committee

In accordance with its charter, the Personnel and Organization Committee (the "P&O Committee") oversees the personnel, compensation and organizational matters of the Company, taking action on its own or making recommendations to the Board of Directors as appropriate. The Committee also discharges the Board's responsibilities with respect to compensation of the Company's executives and prepares an annual report on executive compensation for inclusion in the Company's annual proxy statement.  In February 2009, the P&O Committee adopted a written policy regarding its selection and use of outside compensation consultants.
