The Audit Committee oversees the Company's accounting and financial reporting process and has the authority and responsibility for the appointment, retention, oversight and compensation of the Company's independent auditors, including pre-approval of all audit and non-audit services to be performed by the independent auditors. The current members of the Audit Committee are Wendy B. Needham (Chairman), Gary P. Fayard, Juliette W. Pryor, Robert C.

The Board has determined that all members of the Audit Committee meet the financial literacy requirements of the NYSE corporate governance listing standards. In addition, the Board has determined that Wendy B. Needham, Gary P. Fayard and Elizabeth W. “Betsy” Camp meet the requirements adopted by the SEC for qualification as an "audit committee financial expert".
