Our Board composition, including the addition of Lt. Gen. Charles Hooper and Dave Stover to the Board, and the refreshment of our Board chair and Compensation Committee chair roles



An update on our financial and operational accomplishments, and our go-forward strategy



Any other information we can provide that would help inform your voting decisions

Our team is available for a call in May prior to our May 23, 2023, annual meeting. Please let us know if there is another time that fits your schedules better. We greatly appreciate your time and look forward to the call.
