BOARD OF DIRECTORS

ACT’s board of directors has three standing committees: audit, governance and compensation. The charters of each such committee are below. In addition, an independent Lead Director was appointed in 2022.
We continue to enhance our focus on good corporate governance by building on our existing practices. Those practices include the following:
  • In-camera sessions, absent any members of management and non-independent directors, take place at each meeting of the board of directors and its committees.
  • Effective January 1, 2023, ACT has implemented equity ownership guidelines for directors, officers and senior management.
  • We have a code of business conduct and ethics policy, which helps us to ensure that matters are handled ethically and with integrity.
  • In 2023, we rolled-out a “Business Ethics Hotline” to facilitate anonymous reporting of any questionable activities.
