CZARNECKI ACTS AS FACILITATOR AT GOVERNANCE CONFERENCE

BOCA RATON, Fla.-- Gerald Czarnecki, Chairman and CEO of the Deltennium Group, acted as a facilitator during the 2004 Annual Corporate Governance Conference held October 17-19 in Washington D.C.

Entitled "Board Leadership: Evolution or Revolution", the 2004 conference focused on the evolution of leadership in the aftermath of the major corporate reforms and the proactive revolution that is required not just for compliance, but for regaining public confidence and dealing with critical issues such as shareholder relations and executive compensation practices. Czarnecki was selected to act as a facilitator due to his expertise and ongoing role as a leader of in-boardroom and public seminars that address the current compliance and governance challenges facing boards of directors.

The conference was hosted by the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), an independent not-for-profit organization founded in 1977 and dedicated to serving the corporate governance needs of directors and boards. The organization conducts educational programs and standard-setting research, and provides information and guidance on a variety of board governance issues and practices. Czarnecki is a member of the NACD's teaching faculty, all of whom are approved by the NACD to lead governance programs that are accredited by ISS (Institutional Shareholder Services) as "Preferred Boardroom Education Programs."

Czarnecki's current professional activities include his role at the Deltennium Group as consultant, investor, professional speaker and author. Headquartered in Boca Raton , the Deltennium Group engages in consulting, training, speaking, researching and investing to further its mission of helping leaders and organizations achieve peak performance.

Czarnecki is also a member of the boards of directors of State Farm Insurance (where he serves as Chairman of the Audit Committee) and State Farm Bank. He has a long-standing commitment to Junior Achievement, and is currently on the Executive Committee and Chairman of the Operations Committee, the Pension Committee and the Compensation Committee of Junior Achievement Worldwide, Inc.
