        Founder, ProGene Biomedical, Inc. (dba IBT Laboratories);
     4. Mr. Steven A. Mock, CPA -- Partner, BKD, LLP; and
     5. Mr. Thomas Reidy.

Clint's emphasis on management accountability and the need for sharp focus and effective strategic planning are essential in today's marketplace. We just need more people like Clint on the board '.
