I believe that in an environment where the incumbents are always on the
slate of candidates and they always get re-elected that increasing the
board size is an important step in getting new folks and diversity on the
board.  Diversity in the nomcom is also important.  The number of
candidates allowed to be chosen by the nomcom is important.  The directions
to the nomcom about diversity is another great step.   I do not believe we
have ever had a person from the Caribbean on the nomcom either.  Maybe
seeking out a more diverse nomcom would help get board candidates from that

I do believe this is a good first step.  Lots more needs to be done,
