Other Board Committees
In addition to the above principal standing committees, the Board has a Stock Committee and a Board-level Executive Committee.
The Stock Committee consists of Jamie Dimon. The committee is responsible for implementing the declaration of dividends, authorizing the issuance of stock, administering the dividend reinvestment plan and implementing share repurchase plans. The committee acts within Board-approved limitations and capital plans.
The committee consists of the Chairman/CEO and the chairs of the Board's five principal standing committees. It may exercise all the powers of the Board that lawfully may be delegated but with the expectation that it would not take material actions absent special circumstances.
The Board establishes committees as appropriate to address specific issues (“Specific Purpose Committees”). The Board currently has four such committees to provide required oversight in connection with certain regulatory orders (“Consent Orders”) issued by the Federal Reserve and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency:
- BSA/AML (Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering) Compliance Committee
- FX (Foreign Exchange)/Markets Orders Compliance Committee
- Sworn Documents Compliance Committee
- Trading Compliance Committee
Each Consent Order committee comprises two to four independent directors. They meet to provide oversight for specific aspects of our control agenda and to monitor progress under action plans developed by management to address the issues identified under the applicable Consent Order.
