Shareholder participation committees
How to Become a Member of a Shareholder Participation Committee
Shareholder Participation Committee members are chosen by random drawing from the names of shareholders who have indicated an interest in participating on a committee and have correctly answered a questionnaire about CIRI.
Members must be 18 years of age and a voting shareholder. CIRI directors, management staff and employees are not eligible to serve, nor are directors and management staff of CIRI subsidiaries or nonprofit affiliates. Former members must wait six years before being eligible to serve again.
Shareholder Participation Committee reply cards for the random selection drawing are mailed to all voting shareholders prior to each CIRI Annual Meeting. Interested shareholders must complete and return the reply card no later than the day of the Annual Meeting to be eligible for the drawing.
The drawing is held the week following the Annual Meeting, with the names of new and continuing Shareholder Participation Committee members announced in the CIRI newsletter.
