According to the USA Shooting Bylaws, to serve as an Independent Director, a person must meet the requirements for independence as enumerated below. 

The Nominating and Governance Committee shall affirmatively make a determination as to the independence of each Independent Director, and disclose those determinations. An “independent director” shall be determined to have no material relationship with USAS, either directly or through an organization that has a material relationship with USAS. A relationship is “material” if, in the judgment of the Nominating and Governance Committee, it would interfere with the director’s independent judgment. To assist it in determining whether a director is independent, the guidelines set forth below are adopted, which shall be applied on a case-by-case basis by the Nominating and Governance Committee.

A Director shall not be considered independent if, within the preceding two (2) years:

a. The Director was employed by or held any governance position (whether a paid or volunteer position) with USAS, the ISSF, or any sport family entity of shooting.

b. An immediate family member of the Director was employed by or held any governance position (whether a paid or volunteer position) with USAS, the ISSF, or any sport family entity of shooting.

c. The Director was affiliated with or employed by USAS’ outside auditor or outside counsel.

d. An immediate family member of the Director was affiliated with or employed by USAS’ outside auditor or outside counsel as a partner, principal or manager.

e. The Director was a member of the USAS AAC.

f. The Director was a member of any constituent group with representation on the Board of Directors.

g. The Director receives any compensation from USAS, directly or indirectly. 20 11592548.3 h. The Director is an executive officer, controlling shareholder, or partner of a corporation or partnership or other business entity that does business with USAS.

Where the guidelines above do not address a particular relationship, the determination of whether the relationship is material, and whether a Director is independent, shall be made by the Nominating and Governance Committee.
