Reform the rules for shareholder nomination of directors. Investors representing 5% or more of company shares should be able to place one or two director candidates on the company proxy ballot sent to all shareholders alongside management's nominees. This shouldn’t only be allowed after some "triggering event", but in any instance where 5% or more of company’s shares can gathered in support of a candidate. The above adoption would establish two important rights

1) investor access to the proxy ballot,

2) and a meaningful shareholder role in the voting.
