Press release date: December 19, 2008

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is seeking votes from its membership with respect to proposed revisions to the Institute By-Laws. Letter ballots are due by January 19, 2009.

Proposed changes to the By-Laws, which were last revised in 2005, reflect the creation of the Audit Committee and its duties. The Audit Committee has been operating for the last three years pursuant to a charter approved by the ANSI Board of Directors. The Committee's purpose is to assist the Board in carrying out financial oversight responsibilities and, in particular, to ensure the independence of ANSI's external auditor. The functions of the Audit Committee are to be kept separate from functions carried out by the ANSI Finance Committee.

The ANSI Board Audit Committee is responsible for:

the appointment and dismissal, compensation, and oversight of ANSI's independent auditor;

assisting the Board in its oversight and assessment of the adequacy and integrity of ANSI's accounting system, financial statements, audit reports, and audit processes; and

periodically reviewing internal financial controls, including Board Conflict-of-Interest policies.

The Committee will report periodically to the Board on its activities and findings, including any issue regarding the quality or integrity of the Institute's financial statements, compliance with regulatory requirements, and the performance and independence of ANSI's independent auditor.

The complete proposed revisions to the ANSI By-Laws can be found with changes marked here, and in a clean version here.

To respond, insert your vote in the letter ballot, paste an electronic signature in the space provided (or scan a signed original) and email it to Tricia Power, assistant to the vice president and general counsel at ANSI (tpower@ansi.org). Alternatively, the form can be signed and faxed to 212.398.0023, attention Tricia Power, or mailed to Tricia Power, ANSI, 25 West 43 Street, Fourth Floor, New York, NY 10036. Responses are due on or before January 19, 2009.

Please contact Ms. Power at 212.642.4881 with any questions.
