The evaluation process must include:

(a) Assessing how the board operates, especially in light of Chapter HC-1;
(b) Evaluating the performance of each committee in light of its specific purposes and responsibilities, which shall include review of the self-evaluations undertaken by each committee;
(c) Reviewing each director's work, his attendance at board and committee meetings, and his constructive involvement in discussions and decision making;
(d) Reviewing the board's current composition against its desired composition with a view toward maintaining an appropriate balance of skills and experience and a view toward planned and progressive refreshing of the board; and
(e) Recommendations for new directors to replace long-standing members or those members whose contribution to the board or its committees (such as the audit committee) is not adequate.
