Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the associated economic challenges, the Board voted 6-0 (one Board Member was absent) to pass a motion to suspend the directives outlined in Board Resolutions related to creating a new employee compensation system. It was emphasized that the commitment to define a new compensation system remains. The Board will revisit its resolutions in January 2021.
