In addition, the Board performs the following specific functions, among others:

  • implements procedures to orient new Board directors, to educate all directors on the business and governance affairs of USAA, and to evaluate Board performance;
  • selects, compensates, and evaluates the Chief Executive Officer and plans for management succession;
  • reviews and approves USAA's strategic plan and the annual operating plans, budget, business plans, and corporate performance;
  • sets policy and provides guidance and strategic direction to management on significant issues facing USAA;
