Committees of the Board


The Board of Directors has formed two permanent committees: the "Finance and Auditing" and "Personnel and Compensation" committees. The board committees themselves do not make any decisions, but rather primarily fulfill an advisory role. They are particularly designed to help make BoD meetings more efficient, and ensure quick, well-founded decisions are made. The committees' tasks are established in their own functional specifications.
