The CIRI nominating committee seeks CIRI shareholders interested in being considered for nomination for the 2009 CIRI Board of Directors’ slate of candidates. To be considered for nomination, all Board slate applicants, including incumbents, must complete a Candidate Nominee Application and return it to CIRI by Jan. 30, 2009, 5 p.m. AST. Additional information about the application process, including the necessary forms, is available on the CIRI website. Copies are also available from CIRI’s Shareholder Relations Department. The nominating committee will review all applications, conduct selected interviews and recommend the most qualified candidates to the CIRI Board of Directors.
Based upon the nominating committee’s recommendations and the Board’s own independent review, the CIRI Board will select five candidates to comprise the Board endorsed slate. CIRI Directors are responsible for initiating and developing the policies that further the goals of the company, while addressing the economic, social and cultural needs of the shareholders.
