Governance Process Policies

These are policies with which the board instructs itself, its committees and its members, about its own job. Policies in this category deal with issues relating to the board’s job and the relationship between the board and others with the exception of the special relationship the policy governance board has with the CEO. The relationship between the policy governance board and the CEO is treated separately. Specifically, these policies describe the board’s job, the chairman’s job, board committee jobs and the board’s link to the shareholders. Some of the policies found in this category are:
