The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing.
On August 28, 2015, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Resources Connection, Inc. (the “Company”) approved an amendment and restatement of the Company’s Second Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Bylaws”), with such amendment and restatement to be effective immediately. The Board amended and restated the Bylaws to revise Section 18 of Article IV of the Bylaws to adopt a majority voting standard for the election of directors in uncontested elections and to make conforming revisions to Section 9 of Article III of the Bylaws. A plurality voting standard will continue to apply in the event of a contested director e lection.
The majority voting standard adopted by the Board includes a director resignation policy that requires an incumbent director who stands for election to the Board but who fails to receive a majority of the votes cast in an uncontested election of directors to tender his or her resignation to the Secretary of the Company promptly following certification of the election results. In such event, the Board, taking into account the recommendation of the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee of the Board, must decide whether to accept or reject the resignation and publicly disclose its decision, including the rationale behind any decision to reject the tendered resignation, within 90 days following certification of the election results. The Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee and the Board may, in making their recommendation or decision, as applicable, consider any factors and other information that they consider appropriate and relevant.
In addition to the above changes, the Board also amended Section 28 of Article V of the Bylaws to clarify that the Chairman of the Board is not required to be an officer of the Company unless determined by the Board in its discretion.
The foregoing summary of the Bylaws is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Bylaws which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
