Governance

Our leadership organization places decision-making at the appropriate level and ensures that the proper checks and balances are in place.

The Board of Directors appoints Committees to help carry out its duties. These Committees work on key issues that cannot be adequately addressed at larger board meetings due to their complexity and technical nature, level of detail and time requirements or because of proper corporate governance principles.
